Amc Eagle Tranny

Hey, I was wondering what the amc eagle used for an auto tranny in 83 and 84. Someone out there must know if it is a 904, 727 or 999. I really need to know before I drive all the way down to look at it. Thanks a lot Mike

Re: Amc Eagle Tranny

I have been told 5 different things, I wish someone just knew. Anyhow I saw that it might be the 998 on a web site but is that really much different from the 999? Is it a good tranny. If no one can help I guess the tranny shop will know after I already buy it!!

I had understood a few years ago that the eagles ran the 904, but can't be 100% sure.

Re: Amc Eagle Tranny

Well I got the tranny, Just for anyone that would like to know it was a 998, I found that out by calling a junkyard before I bought it, and it is like the 904 light duty. But screw it If I go through all the trouble of making an auto and that goes then the 727 is the same length and will bolt right in!!

The Six cylinder Automatics were 998s, which are identical to the 999, theyre plenty tough.

Re: Amc Eagle Tranny

The 998 is the same as a 999 that came in CJs, but it is a non-lockup. I'm typing from memory, but I recall that the 904 is the lighter duty, having one less clutch in the clutch pack and a 2.45 first gear instead of the more desirable 2.74 first, otherwise they are all pretty much the same.

Good Luck

Re: Amc Eagle Tranny

all of my books and by TSM says the 998 has a lockup, and i can feel it go into lockup in my Eagle this is cruising at 60 well into the throttle, then let off all the way, i can hear the engine noise 'notch'. May be different in Jeeps (999) but As far as i Know the 998s in Eagles have lockup Converters, they are interanlly controlled by a pressure circut, and not by an electric clutch like all of the other automatics with lockups.
