AX-15 to Chevy V-8

Anyone here do this?
I'm looking to see if the YJ pressure plate and clutch disk will work with the AA bellhousing adapter. From what I've read, they're the same size.
( 10 - 1 1/8 ) What about bolting up the the chevy flywheel?
I'm installing a TPI 305, and trying to buy all the pieces before I tear it apart, but would love to save that extra $$$ from another new clutch kit.

You will need a Chevy pressure plate. I just installed an '02 Blazer 4.3 Vortec in my YJ, and the used motor came with a 4.3 stock PP and disk already on it. The AX15 plugged right in with the Adv Adpt bellhousing. Even had the right pilot bushing already in the flywheel.

Check Novak adapters about the AX15 they have alot of good info on tranny swaps and how to adapt them. I have a 1980 CJ-5 with a 68 Corvette 327 that i purchased this past July that i want to upgrade to a five speed and so far the AX15 is the prime candidate for the swap.
