87 peugeot swap question

I'm rebuilding my 4.2 and may have a chance at an AX15 tranny to replace my French speaking peugeot at the same time. What parts do I need other than the transfer case? Is the bell housing or clutch different?

Re: 87 peugeot swap question

transfer case is fine...check the input shaft spline counts though...there were 2 different ones. Other than that you need nothing.

Re: 87 peugeot swap question

There is an adapter for the input shaft ( I believe) Since the input from the BA/10 has a 21 spline input shaft and the AX15 has a 23 spline there is an adapter needed.

One thing to double check is what transfer case you have, since I have an 88 and I have the NP231, and the 87 I believe came with the NP207, which might be a little different with the input shaft. Not completely sure.

Should help out a little. I'm looking for a write up that someone sent me about the process.

Re: 87 peugeot swap question

Saw this on eBay and thought of this tread...

Jeep wrangler. ax 15, 5 speed transmission

I have bought several things from this seller in the past few years and they are reliable and will gladly work with you on anything else that might be needed.

If lah2420 can't use it maybe someone else can.

Good Luck

Re: 87 peugeot swap question

I saw that web site on the Cherokee. I guess my main question is will the AX15 bell housing bolt up to the rear of my Peugeot-infected 4.2L? And can I use one that was behind a 4.0 or will I need a different bell housing than that? I do have the 207 T/C and hope to change it too.
Thanks for the responses.
