Need some tranny tech info AMC 401 IH T19

I 'm building a 401 powered Cj-7 and want to use this scout T-19, This older dude I know owns a Jeep grave yard, and he told me a T-150 Bellhousing will work. The bolts arent looking (well lets just say if he's right it was machined in poland) like they will line up to say the least.
Any and all info. is invited.

Thanks

He might have been referring to the bell housing being the right length to match the input shaft, the hole centering the input bearing retainer but having to drill the correct bolt pattern in it.

awesome

That link you put up was awesome,I was hoping that this was just a fix for the input shaft. I work at a large machine shop so indicating the hole in and redrilling would not be a problem. I just did'nt want to waste my time.

... And when you do the machining take a few picuters and write up how you did the project. We'd all like to learn a little... multipy the knowledge.

ok here we are to start

I just put the aluminum T-150 bell housing next to the scout cast Iron T-19 ,It is exactly 3 inches deeper the T-150 is 6.5 fron the flat to the bottom of the bell (on concrete with a tape line, no granite and depth mic's at home) the T-19 is 9.5. so unless there is an adapter kit, I'm guessing we may have to cut and re-spline the input. by 3 inches. I may wait until the end of next week to hear from all the adapter places to see what is cheaper. even with an available machine shop thats alot to do. you'd have to put the shaft in a lathe,or saw cut the 3 inches off. Then take the shaft put it in an indexing head and rotate about 8 degrees for each spline lots of trig. Blah,blah,blah lots to do. I will take lots of pics this is not as easy as the link said, at least to do it properly and I'm a stickler for detail and factory like functionality. nah but seriously I try and do all driveline stuff properly!

If you use the T 150 bell you will need a Ford T18 input shaft/gear, collar, and the adapter pilot bushing from Advance or Novak. Go to the Novak sight and read up on swapping a Ford T18 to the Jeep motor. I believe the same applies as far as the front of the T19 goes.

I purchased an oddball T18 and after a couple of weeks of trying to locate the right parts, decided to go with the Ford input, collar and adapter pilot. Super easy parts to find and swapping them out is fairly easy as well.

One thing to watch for... You might have to also change out the front main shaft bearing. Apparently there is a "thick" style and "thin" style. Just use the Ford application.

Don't bother with the chain parts stores for this. Go to the local tranny shop. Mine had the parts in stock (except for the adapter bushing which arrived in short order from Novak).

Is this the only hammer you've got?

Ditto to Jdoggmoney's advice (the others too)
You sure this a IH T-19? Mounting ears on the tranny, right? Do you need a T-19 to Dana 20 adapter? I have one in my Spare/extra/junk pile for sale.

Good luck

I can't believe my luck

I just pulled the bellhousing off yesterday, I got the tranny and dana 20 for $250 ,I turned it in 4-low it was turning at 13.1 I'm not sure how to calculate it with the transfer case on. any body a mathmatician (if i even spelled that right). I am turning the yoke 360 degrees so I'm kinda not getting it. I guess the dana 20 could mess that up. once again I call upon the knowledge of the 4 wheel veteran.
