Re: Need a T18 Bellhousing
yes, the T150/T176 bellhousing will work perfect for a T98. This is exactly the setup I have in my CJ (360->T98). I had to change my tranny's input shaft, because it came out of a J-truck and was too long, but since I rebuilt it I didn't mind in the least. Otherwise it bolted right up. One caveat: the one bolt hole off from the 'Ford' pattern and T18/98 pattern (middle driver's side) is not threaded and comes in just behind the clutch fork. As you might suspect, the fix is simple: thread the hole and use a bolt short enough that it doesn't interfere with the clutch fork.
While we're on the subject of T98's, have you gotten a reverse light switch hooked up to it yet? I got some simple tips on that if you're interested.
