Interesting find, you describe normal W and T on a trans. I can't explain the smoke, but these do wear out.
None of us have tons of money, that's why we're on this forum and drive Jeeps. Start a Craigslist search, ebay search for a tranny. You are in the mecca of parts availability. Remember that I am limited in what I can get since I live on a little effing rock in the middle of the effing Pacific, but you have tons of options. Google up some rebuilders, call Mantrans, etc. Get your self either a junkyard YJ trans or buy a remanufactured, and stuff it back in your YJ and be done with it. If you can drop a trans, you can do a new clutch and put in a "new" trans and save yourself a ton of money.
I don't have an issue with rebuilding trannies, I have all the equip and have 3 AX15 under the house that I plan on piecing together at least 2 and selling them off, or saving them for my own use when I go with an LS series SBC in the YJ. PM me, I'll send you a rebuild link to the AX15 so you can at least read thru it. Mean Max rebuilds these as well, and he's a pro tranny guy now with some AX15 build threads in the stickies.
Here's my rec--find a reman trans, use yours as a core, install a new clutch kit and a rebuilt trans, smile and drink beer.
