Re: broke T-150 (again)..considering swap to auto..please help!!
First, I would try and get my money back. Even junk yards offer some type of warranty. Second, are you sure that you have oil in the transmission?
There are advantages to going with an Auto....a lot depends on what gears you have. With an Auto, the torque converter allows you to run a lower ratio, i.e., 3.73 vs. 4.11. You might want to look into GM 700 tranny. Advance Adapters makes an adapter for it and I belive its the right length. There is a data base (sorry, I can't remember where) that tells what year jeeps had which tranny (both auto and manual). But to be honest, if funds are tight (i know that feeling)...then you will most likely come out cheaper sticking whith what you have either rebuilding it or replacing it with a similar unit.
