Re: parts at the local pick and pull

check out www.ifsja.org
(That stands for international full size jeep association)

I believe it may be the T18, I'd check that site for sure

Re: parts at the local pick and pull

Remember that the T18s used in the FS had a longer input shaft and adaptor. It pushes the tranny back an additional 6-8 inches. You can swap in the shorter CJ input shaft

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)

cheap T18

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.

good luck!

Re: parts at the local pick and pull

JeepGod runs a full length one in his CJ7, if you have a V8 its probably alright ( although the rear driveshaft could be shorter)

if you have an inline 6 then it probably wont work.
