When I got this jeep it was because it was a smokin deal. I really wanted to get a M715. Does anyone know of a good venue to post this in trade for a M715?

Today I picked up a good used t15 transmission. From what I read this is a direct swap for the t150. Come on. So from what I get I use the t15 bell with the t150 clutch setup and the dana20 should be a direct bolt up. Does anyone know about the x member or the shifters?

clutch

Ok, so all of the people that said this swap is awesome everything is the same, are full if it! The T 150 uses a 1 1/16 10 spline clutch shaft. The T15 uses a 1 1/8 clutch shaft, with 10 splines, so the T15 clutch has to be used. So this means I got to purchase a brand new complete clutch kit. The pilot bushing has to be changed also. That sucks about the gladiator, I hope that guy at least bounced his head off the steering wheel!

Then

Then after I got all of the clutch issues fixed, I attempted to mate the dana 20 that I had to the trans. The T15 has these protruding shafts and keeper, the T150 does not.

Mad

At this point im starting to get mad. Nothing is going as should according to experts (beer chugging friends). See under the input hole? no spot for the shafts to fit. So I called the real experts (R&P 4WD). They did send me a pic of the correct dana 20, so I knew what to look for.

better

So I called my buddy Warren. Warren traded me a correct dana 20 for my dana 20, +20$. Sweet. This is a picture of the dana 20 that you need to hook up to the T15.

Irish spring wins

I figured I would share this trick. I was trying to remove the old pilot bushing, it was being very difficult. I do not have a puller for this, and im the kind of guy who would rather drink a gallon of gas than go buy a special tool.lol. Everyone said pack the hole with grease and then put a punch in the center, and hit it with a hammer, to push the bushing out with hydraulic pressure. This did not work and made a big f ing mess. One guy said, try wet toilet paper. Again didnt work. At this point I was mad again and had a huge greasy toilet paper mess under my jeep. So I asked a old guy ( this is one of my best tricks, find the oldest mechanic you know and ask when in doubt). He said that grease nowdays is to runny, and doesnt work worth a crap. He said "go get the half used bar of soap out of your shower, thats kinda soft". He said it is the perfect consistency, and would pop it out. Irish spring wins!

Should I use this rear end?

I have this full custom rear hi pinion dana 44 with 3" dom tubes. I have been toying with the idea of throwing this under the cj to take care of my rear pinion issue. I have a powerlock with aggressive clutch set and cromos for it also. What do you think? If I end up doing it, I will also probably throw the 6.3:1 t 18 with novak adapter to dana 300, in also. what do you all think?

I got the t15 and Dana 20 mounted today. One small problem. The front driveline is about 3" short at full extension. Since this jeep does not have a shackle reversal, and the axle moves away from the t case under compression, can I just lengthen the drive line that I have?

sure i do it all the time...the best way is to use your entire driveshaft.....first find a section of pipe/tube that will slide over your existing shaft...not so tight as to have to hammer fit if its just a little loose vegatable cans can be used as centering shims...ill explain...once you find tube....mark each end of driveshaft so you can keep it in factory alignment(for balance) then cut existing shaft in half...bolt or hold both sections in place with slip yoke where you think it should be...i use a piece of angle to align the pieces for a better measure ment...then measure from weld to weld on the main tube..this should be the length of your new tube...slide shafts into tube see if they wobble if not remove and drill a few holes a few inches from center of tube on each side of center...these will be plug welded later...if shafts wobble use vegatble cans as shims since you can easily weld thru them and the can be cut to fit the entire diameter of your shaft they will center nicely...once your happy with everything weld it up trynot to glob anything or it might get out of balance...you can always grind any extra metal away if you think it needs it...i have had very good luck using this process and have not had any vibration problems out of any of my shafts yet..even if you do finding a shop to balance it shouldnt be hard and would still be way cheaper than buying a custom shaft
