Re: Att: H8
I call my contact @ AA for any compatability questions. If you get a hold of one of their (AA) Complete Tranny Mannuals, it will have, nearly every concievable engine/tranny/T case scenario, and the part numbers to make the marriagee(or divorce) a success. Even with the manual, in my mechanical archives, Its typicaly quicker to just call em up, and ask(unless your trying to solve problems at 1:00 in the morning).
Jeepgods estimate on the price is sad but true,(in fact it could probably be a blanket statement that anything in the AA cataloge, is between $300 and $500).
On a good note though, if a mainshaft swap is neccessary, it is pretty easy to break down the T18 and reassemble. If you know someone in the tranny buis, you can talk them into letting you make copies of their Shop Technical Manuals, and can give you a supplier for the hard to find parts. The last sentence should be read as "find a tranny shop owner/mechanic, and start sucking up",[hint] everyone likes donuts and coffee in the morning, while your discussing their legendary prowess in thier field of expertise [hint].
Things like hydraulic slave/master cylinders, can be solved with a little enginuity, so dont go the packaged AA solution for those types of issues.
Good luck, it should be a strong, reliable combo, with quite a few future options for ratio and strength upgrades, if neccessary.
