Re: Whats it take to put a early CJ5 body on a 76+ CJ5
Umm, to count the number of turns you need to be able to see both the input shaft and output of the tranny. You also have 6 turns of the input shaft for one turn of the output whether it's the tranny output or transfer case output when in high range (not six turns of the output). If it is the stock four speed it has the 6.32:1 first gear. All of the CJ T18's from '76 to '79 had the granny gear. The earlier ones had the 4:1.
