I disagree. If he stays mechanical and finds the part I am talking about, the existing cable on his 87 will hook right up. That is exactly what I did when I swapped in the NP231 on my 87 a couple of months ago. The mechanical speedo cable is 100% compatible. The only other thing the OP needs is the correct speedo gear for his tire size.

OP, it is your lucky day! I found what you need in the link below on ebay! Better buy it while it is still available! It is the same guy I bought mine from.

Sold. thanks. Now if your still in the mood what pilot bushing did you install when you did your swap. I keep reading a bushing from a 73 cj5 will work, but may be a hair long. What do you think?

I can get one from AA so I will probably order it this weekend. I have read the ones from the can fit a little loose in the crank. Not sure if that's true just not willing to take the chance. I guess i will need to order the appropriate gear for the speedo also. Running 255.75.17s.Thanks and I will keep u guys updated.

I actually swapped in a NP231 TC to replace the NP207. I kept my BA10/5. It has 200k on it and is still running, so I elected to keep it. I will swap in an ax15 when it finally dies. It gets a bad rap, but like I said I have 200k on mine so it can't be that bad.

The tranny was pretty worn out so thought what the hell, got it cheap. This is going to be the kids jeep when he turns 16 here in about six months, getting ready to do the body and lift. should be fun.
