sorry if I sound repetitive but does this sound like everything im going to need to purchase: seperator plate, bearing retainer, the nose cone, and the input bearing? also what about the input shaft length, what should I do if it needs to be changed? Im going to hopefully drop the t14 today and check all the mounting holes on the t18 to see if the bellhousings match up.

Bearing retainer and nose cone= samething. You need to use the T18 bellhousing as bluerubiconrich said, the t14 is not the same, it is deeper. You can get a clutch kit for a 79 CJ5 with the 258 and a t18. It should fit and was a stock setup with the T18 option. Do a google search as there is a ton of info on this swap. Looking at the pics again you also need the clutch fork.
