Re: parts at the local pick and pull
if its a 4 speed, and no one swapped it around, its a T18, if its a 3 speed its a T150, the tranfser will be a dana 20
the input shaft behind V8 FSJ was about 15 inches long, with a spacer between bellhousing and tranny.
if you have a short wheelbase ( CJ5) you ll need a T150 bellhopusing ( easy to find) and a Ford T18 input shaft ( pretty easy to find also)
then you have a short T18, with Dana 20
its what Im in the process of doing, I got the tranny for $100 from a J10, the input shaft from a guy in the PIrate BBS for $43, and Ill install new bearings in the tranny while its apart ( $100 kit)
one thing though, it MAY NOT have the granny first gear, youll have to turn the input shaft and count rotations to see.
there is no way im aware of to tell if its granny or not visually.
