If you want a 3-speed auto you should consider a TF727 from a G. Wagoneer. It will bolt in without any adapters. You may have a clearance issue with the tranny pan and front driveshaft dpending on how much lift you have. You could also us a beefed up TF999 from a CJ. All other trans will require $$$ adapters.

Re: AMC 360, how do i get an auto tranny to fit?

the tf727 sounds good but can i mate a dana 300 to it without adapters? and how hard are they to find? how would this shorter tranny affect my driveshaft angles? the cj is going soa when the motor is all done. so just trying to plan ahead... thanks for the help.

the TF 727 is VERY common.. all the auto equipped 360's from about 1980 on had them.
the d-300 bolts right to it, but at an odd angle. You're best off buying the cheap clocking ring for a d-300 and clocking it up.
I'm not sure the tj 727 is significantly shorter than the t400

Not by much but it is,, and,, OH,,, by the way,,, The shorter the tranny the better the angle will be on the drive line for the rear and the front may be a little steeper. but the diff between the T400 and the TF727 there will be no issue.

As to the drive line clearing the oil pan on the 727 depends on the amount of lift you have and whether or not you have the motor mounted high on the frame. (taller mounts)

Clocking the D300 down or in your case the 727 and D300 combo will be clocked down some you may not have an issue at all. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

ok so the tf727 sounds good but how would the dana 300 sit since the d300 is a pasenger side drop and the tf 727 came with new process xfercases which are driver side drop????or what has to be done?

Transmission doesn't care what side the X-fer dumps on.

Us YJ guys dream of "flipping" a D300 for our driverside drop...and when I do that I will pull the TF999 and put in a TF727, the tranny wont care.

see this page:

On a CJ, there is not sufficient clearance for the drive shaft with a stock suspension, but with a three to four inch lift and a dropped bump stop, the drive shaft will not hit the pan.

Re: AMC 360, how do i get an auto tranny to fit?

I would get a 727 and then see about the clocking ring. On my Scrambler, there is no way I could have clocked the t-case up any. Trying to get the t-case flat only increases the clearance issues with the front shaft. I run a 727 on my SOA Scrambler and don't have any clearance issues. I raised my motor 1.5" and am using CJ rear 7-leaf springs on all 4 corners. I only raised the motor because I wanted a flatter skid. If I were doing it again, I would skip the motor lift to keep my center of gravity lower. Let me know if you have any questions.
