Installing a NP435 in a jeep, is this right

Don't worry about the transfer case end.

I will be swapping a ford np435 into my cj-8 with the 258 and t4. I've been gathering information and want to know if this is all right.

I can use my bell housing (t4) and drill holes in it.

A conversion pilot bushing is required from novak or advanced. Is there any other way to do it?

Use a 10.5" ford clutch with my amc flywheel and pressure plate.

What do I do about the throw out bearing? Will my amc fork work with the ford bearing? Or how is it done? I didn't find any info on this part.

Re: Installing a NP435 in a jeep, is this right

I'm using a bellhousing from a mid 80's F150/250, and using the 11 " flywheel and fork from the same truck. I don't know if that will bolt to the 258 tho (this is being bolted to a 302). The input shaft for the NP435 is the same as the T4/5, but the output shaft is different. Depending on what application the NP435 came out of (4wd divorced, 4wd, or 2wd) the output shaft will be longer or shorter, but the spline count is different too. The Novak adapter comes with a new output shaft, and fits like a glove. You can probably just order the output shaft from them too if you don't want the whole adapter.

I will compare the AMC fork/throw out bearing to the Ford fork/throw out bearing tonight and post back differences.

If you go to an older "REAL" part store. Their books on the counter will have the dimensions of the pilot bushings. Just compare the one for the NP435, to the one for the T4. When I did my 5.0 swap (originally a 302 swap) everybody said I needed a special pilot shaft bushing. But the T150 pilot shaft I.D. was the same as used on the FORD transmission.
