Re: T-176 vs T-177 rebuild
My understanding is that gear ratio is the only difference between the two transmissions. I've just torn my T176 (I'm assuming a 176, just like you) apart. You didn't mention if you pulled the input shaft (clutch shaft?) bearing from the case. It basically holds everything inside the case.
The T176 should bolt right where the T150 did, I did the same swap. I'm running the T176/D300 combo in my '78 CJ5, so I don't see any issues for you.
