Transmission for 1987 wrangler

I'm looking for an automatic transmission that will work for a 1987 jeep wrangler with a 4.2 258 engine. I found one from a junk yard but found out that it was cracked when I took it to the shop that was going to put it in. Basically what I'm aking is if anybody has one that they are willing to sell me or if they knows of one that is for sale that will work. Thanks in advance for any help.

its a tf999 so look for one from an international, an amc, or a jeep

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

The crack is on the bell housing so what do you think of welding the crack? Do you think that would keep the crack from growing because it is made of alluminum? Is there any other easier to find transmission that works for it because the tf999 is fairly difficult to find.

Welding aluminum can be done pretty good, I prefer TIG welding for that, 2nd choice would be a MIG with a spool gun. Your best bet would be to take the guts out of the trans and bring the empty housing into a local machine shop or jobber shop. They could prolly do it fairly cheap, its less than a day's work.
