AMC304>>>TF727

Did Jeep ever use this combination stock, anywhere? This is what I'm planning on putting in the Commando till I can get the 360 done up right...but I can't find any listing for a flex plate...Can I use a flex plate for a TF999/904?

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

Didn't the TF727 come behind the 360 in the wagoneer??? I know you can't use the flywheel from a 360 on a 304, but why couldn't you use the flexplate from the 360?

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

I was under the impression I COULD NOT use the flexplate from the 360...I have several of them...????????????? I thought the 304, 340, 360 and 401 were all externally balanced and needed specific flex plates...is this wrong? Is it only flywheels that are different and not flexplates?

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

Tough one, i also heard about the flywheel incompatibility, but heard nothing of the flexplate. I thought they were interchangable, but will waite for someone that knows for sure. Sorry for the no help LOL

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

Sorry, the 304 and 360 flex plates are different part numbers too. I will be paying attention to this though as I might swap my spare 304 into the YJ at some future time. You might look at 1981 CJ7's to see if the 304 was used in front of a TF. The 904, 999 and 727 will work with the same flexplate.

Found it. At autozone, the part number for the 304 and TF transmission is FRA-108. $36.

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

You the man Will. I used your 81 CJ7 example and was able to wade through their site...but I came up with a part # of FRA-118.

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

FRA-118 is the 6 cylinder flex plate.

Re: AMC304>>>TF727

How is that possible? Take it somewhere to be rebalanced to the same as a 304? Also, the 6 cylinder plate is about $10 more than the 304.
