Ba 10

Hey my clutch has gone bad in my Ba/10 trans. Online a new clutch kit runs around $350!!!!! Is there any other option for me, ie upgrade to a better trans that i could find cheaper(same price or a lil higher even) in a junkyard? It pains me to dump almost $400 into a junky trans...
Dave

You can do an AX-15 Trans/tcase swap for around that price if you get a good deal on the trans.

The part that gets hard is the BA-10 tcase setup is 21 spline and the AX-15 is 23 spline.

Hit the FAQ, there is a few writeups on BA-10 swaps to better trans.

Autozone has the complete kit, clutch, pressure plate, slave cylinder, and pilot bearing for $160. PepBoys has it for $169. NAPA also carries it, but I don't remember the price.
And the BA10/5 will last you a long time if you don't abuse it and change the gear oil in it every 50K miles.

This is also true.

Blech, dump the BA if you can. Mine blew at about 140k kilometers, on stock tires too.

well my ba/10 has over 250,000 miles on it and seems to be taking the abuse ok. i am defiantely going to look into that pepboys/autozone clutch kit b/c i dont mind the 160. jcwhitney, summitracing, and quadratec's kits were all well over that price... if i were to find an ax15 couldnt i just take the tcase that is bolted up to it or will that not work out well?

The BA10/5 has a 21 spline output shaft where the AX-15 has a stronger 23 spline output shaft. You can reuse the transfer case if you change the input shaft to a 23 spline.

Best case, least amount of work really, you would get the trans and tcase together.

Change the gear oil in the transfer case, and the ATF Dextron III in the t-case while you have them out.

Not to hijack the thread, but can anyone tell me why mine won't stay in reverse. As soon as I start letting out the clutch it pops out and I have to force it to stay in. I can hear and feel it popping, and grinding if that helps. Thanks for any help, Jon.

The friction parts for the BA-10 and AX-15 are exactly the same. The BA-10 throwout bearing may be used with the 1988.5-1993 AX-15i (internal slave) without incident, but you'll need to swap hydraulics to use a 1994-1999 AX-15e (external slave.)

Apparently, the input pilot on the AX-15i is the same OD as the BA-10, but the AX-15e has a larger input and requires a different bushing (early 1970's CJ w/V8-304 and three-speed.)

I've certainly never paid anything over $150 for a clutch kit for my 88 - whether I was putting it in front of a replacement BA-10 (I was there anyhow,) or putting it in front of my AX-15. Where are you shopping?

Granted, I did get the replacement BA-10s for the asking. Their only saving grace.
