AX-15 install problems!!!!

So I have an 89 yj with a 4.2L backed up to a AX-15. Well the transmission went out, so I bought one from a 94 XJ... I switched over my internal slave set up and the back so I didn't have to clock the t-case. My problem now is I can't get the trans to bolt up.. feels like something is stopping it... thoughts???

There are pilot bushing and input shaft diameter differences between those years I believe.

Did you change the pilot bearing to a larger size? (from 0.590" ID to 0.750" ID)

Your 1989 AX-15's input shaft diameter is 0.590" diameter.
The 94 tranny's input shaft diameter is 0.750" diameter.
The 94 tranny's larger input shaft won't fit into the smaller original pilot bearing.

1989-1991's were 0.590"
1992 and up are 0.750"

Agreed with above, you need a pilot bushing now to fit the new transmission.

Thats what i did. I have an '88 YJ with 4.2. My crappy stock tranny went out. So i got an AX15 out of a '97 XJ along with the TC. I clocked the TC, got a pilot bearing for a '74 CJ with the 304, got a slave/master cylinder (one piece) for a '94 YJ. All went in fine. I had a new clutch installed too. Make sure to use the right pilot bearing alignment tool.
