it seems the t18 is the transmission wanted in a jeep cj, and from what i have read it came in fsj's too. what the difference between the two? its just the long input shaft right? are these trannies easier and cheaper to find than cj-t18's? so couldn't i just i change the input shaft, and this will bolt up to the dana 20? one more thing, will a GM 4 cylinder jeep bellhousing bolt to any t18? i read at off-road.com's tech section that the ford t18 bolt pattern is the same as a t-176 which is the same as a GM 4 cylinder (i think) but is the jeep the same too? i'm really, really sorry for these questions, but you guys are the only people i know that know jeeps, and i need the help so i know what i'm getting into. i'd rather build it right the first time than have to redo it again. thanks a lot /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif.

youll need a ford input shaft, and bearing collar,( about $130) and the appropriate bellhousing, i dont know ANYTHING about the GM 4 banger..

the FSJ T18 will already be bolted to a dana 20 if you get one before 1980, the ones after 1980 have a 5 inch adapter on the rear of them that will fit a dana 300 but its really LONG, unless you have a CJ8

the later 70s FSJ trannys are the ones that are 6.32:1 granny first, some of hte older ones might be either, just verify it before you buy it..

I bought a fsj T18 out of a 1970 Wagoneer. It has granny low, says T18 on tranny case but says T98 on top cover (were using up left over t98 covers). I also bought a Ford T18 out of a 1970 2wd pickup. I had the front bearing holder turned down on a lathe to fit in my GM (buick V6) bellhousing. With some mods the Ford case will bolt up to my bellhousing. Then I need to take the Jeep output shaft out to install in the ford tranny. I also need to take jeep transfer case adapter plate off, drill and tap ford case to match. Quite an undertaking but hopefully will be worth it. Ed.
