Will it fit?
'76 CJ7 with 304, Tremec T-150 3 speed and a Dana 20 transfer case.
I want a 5 speed, so I picked up a Borg Warner T-5 out of an '86 CJ7.
Why? Yeah, I know that the T-5 is a weak trans for rock crawling, etc., but my rig is very light duty. I want to increase mileage.
Will the bell housing fit?
How much longer is the T-5? Will my shifter and t-case lever be in a new location?
I realize that I probably need the Dan 300 transfer case. Will it bolt up with little modification?
Another Jeep guy told me that the .86 Overdrive gear would be too high geared, and I'd lose speed on the freeway. He also told me that it'd be really expensive to make the change.
Please provide feedback. Thanks.
