ok so what if hte T18 bell came off of a Fullsized jeep truck wioth a T18 and has the 5 inch spacer between teh bell and the tranny, if I removed the spacer is it just like a CJ T18 bell/ or a CJ T150 bell?
thanks, I need clarification!
NW Arkansas, need a Jeep T18a CJ or truck!!
The answer to question is NO. here is why, you have to get rid of the bell housing and the spacer and the clutch shaft and the bearing retainer. We happen to have a Ford T 18 and in reference to the same question you are asking We asked Vince at Hicks 4x4 (a close and personal fiend) He says this
> Yes, the input from the Ford T18 will work in the Jeep T18
They are not real hard to do if you
>have the proper puller. Pulling off the front and rear bearings would be the
>hardest thing to do. Once they are off then it is disassemble and reassemble.
>The clutch and bellhousing should come from a 1976 to 1979 CJ with the AMC engine. In those years they used the T150 and it had the same spline as the Ford T18. > Vince
Not everybody has a Ford transmission hanging around, Vince can set you up with what you need for this. [email protected]
Also there is an explaination on the transmission tech articles here on the Off-Road web pages. run a search on T-18s.
My 360 T-18 and dana 20 came off a J-10 and is going into my CJ 7 after it gets shortened up. Does any of this make sense if not email me dirrectly and I will try to clarify
Hey Ozark the J-10 Wagoneer, Cherokee all used the deep bellhousing, the same one used with the T-15 three speed. They used various lengths of adapters with these combonations.the bellhousing you would need with the ford input shaft is the T-150 bell housing
