No know problems..

my tranny is still holding up.. T case as well.. I have bumped up my hp to 375 and she still is holding strong.

Its so amazing what little things you can do to a motor and she gets bumped up.

I got some better specs for everyone on my jeep

302 - 5.0 Ho -- full roller
ax 15 transmission
np 231 with the currie cheap slip yoke -- non 32 spline

jeep weight -- 4240 pnds.
and link to my new pics is --- Joshs Jeep

I sold my 38s and am running some cheap 35s untill i get enough dollars to buy some 37 x12.5 x 15 goodyear mtrs

ohh.. and on what everyone said about motor tranny t case...

best things to look for....

5.0 ho 's came almost complete roller motors... just add some r rockers
t- 18 out of the 70s pickups ... 3/4 tons... came with bigger nuts.. just get an adapter which is simple find a bellhousing out of a 1/2

I am 100% possitive that they didn't come in the 80s maybe early but no way... that was the 435 or the 19.. don't be fooled.. there are alot of look alikes.. and for someone to change my mind... show me a stock truck that came with a t-18 in the 80s.

transfer cases...
everyone says the 205... its good and strong but its made backwards and with cheaper made parts. if you were to have a chevy or dodge youll be ok. but that puts everything on the wrong side. But if you get a deal for one snag it up.. shell hold good just not good when you get some low gears and big tires.

Honestly the reason i haven't hurt anything yet ... comes down to gears.
I run 3.55 .. tall gears with 38s. I should have 456 or even 4.10s but if i were to do that i know she will not hold... to much force etc.

Hi Everyone, I am new here. Great site. I just did a 5.0 SEFI swap in my 66 Bronco. My engine came from a 87 Cougar, not an HO, but it has more than enough power. I am running a Dana 44 in front, 9" in rear (stock equipment for an early Bronco) , 3 speed manual and dana 20 t case, 3.50 gears and 32-11.50-15, and have no problem spinning them like crazy. I am thinking of doing the same swap in my 79 Cherokee. Have any of you guys thought of using a Bronco Dana 20 case for these YJ and TJ swaps? The output shaft is on correct side and a lot more compact than the NP205. It is so different from the Jeep Dana 20 that I can't believe it has the same model. It has a 2.46 : 1 or 2.34 : 1 low range depending on year. As for the tranny, the NP435 is a lot more common that the T18. They were used from 1967 till 1983 in F100-F350's. For anyone interested I have 2 of these Bronco cases if anyone wants one. The AOD controversy is partly correct. AOD's up till 1987 had oiling problems and weren't as durable. After 1988 , they were much better.
Thanks

First off, these are transfer cases, not trannies, maybe I didn't make it that exactly clear. They are compatable with the T18 if that is what you meant. That is a pretty popular swap with Early Broncos. I have two of these t-cases, one is out of a 66 Bronco and has an inline shift pattern and the 2.46 low range. I just took this one out of my Bronco. All it needs is seals (mainly the front output) and it would be fine. The other is out of a 73 Bronco, has the 2.34 low range, has a T shift assembly that needs to be converted to inline shift and needs to be gone through, as I only parted this one out of a severly rusted bronco. The 66 case I would take $150, the 73, $100. Email me at shoez4@hotmail.com if you are interested. Check with Jeff's Bronco Graveyard for the adapter if you already have a T18. I think it runs $300 (broncograveyard.com). Or Advance adapters.

Call Z&M asking about the clutch / headers problem I have been having.

They suggested a kit, that they have, to move the Clutch Slave closer to the bellhousing. Supposedly this kit will allow the use of stock 5.0 Mustang headers.

I receive the parts and they look good but I have not installed them yet. Still working on the Transfer Case clearance situation.

Will let you know how I made out.

Can anyone help clear me up on which NP 435 to look for. I understand there is a 2wd and a 4wd version and both can be used.....divorced or married to the t-case. Is this correct?? So, wouldn't a married setup be better in the Jeep, or are there other pros/cons?

And for the transfer case......I've heard the D20 is plenty strong and smaller, but will or can it "bolt" right up to a '435 or is an adapter required?

Any other [drivetrain] advise is welcome!

Can't help on much but there is an adapter required for the 435 and the D20.

LOL,


p.s. Don't use the divorced T/C...
