np231 question?
 
The np231 can only be attached to the dreaded ba10/5 one way...right? In other words it cant be clocked wrong? The studs only seem to a line one way. Im in the middle of reassembling my transmissions/t-case and dont want to get it together and under the jeep and its clocked wrong! Thanks for the input!!!

I just swapped in an NP231 AMC last weekend on my Jeep. The clocking is perfect on the TC I used. I had to remove one of the mounting studs on the face of the TC though because my BA10 only used 5 mounting holes to tie the tranny and TC together.

EDIT: When I installed the TC, it was almost parallel to the belly pan. If your TC is almost parallel to the ground, you should be OK.

the 231 your putting in came from the same jeep? If it didn't then you might have a Cherokee 231?

I think mine came from a Cherokee as well. I had read that they would require a clocking ring, but this one did not. Now I am not 100% sure, but I am betting mine was a Cherokee TC simply because it says NP231 AMC and the manufacture year was '88.

Also, you can buy clocking rings that clock up and down. So make sure you have the correct ring for your application, if you are using a clocking ring.

I thought it was the same ring?... up or down just depends on how you line up the holes in the ring

Some do, some don't. I looked at one that they wanted to know if you were doing a driver/passenger drop and also clocking up/down for the application. I was just bringing it up so the OP didn't inadvertently buy the wrong one. Like I said though, mine went on without one.
