cj-7 360 edelbrock aluminum heads, air gap intake, cam, 750 carb. GOOD COMBO?

I Just Purchased A 360 Long Block With Dana 20 Transfer
Case And Automatic Tranny. I'm Chucking The Tranny But
Would Like To Find A T-18 4-speed. Is This A Good Tranny
With A Higher Hp 360?

Hell yes. Strongest, but not a racing 4 speed by any stretch, but it handle hi HP. Make sure you get the shifter from the donor truck!! You may need a t-150 bell housing/fork, and will need an adapter to the X-fer case (novak, advance adapters etc..) Novak has a great "knowlege page" for info. Before you start, realize that that the diffs are on the opposite side (pass vs drivers), so your fron axle will have to change. But you already knew that.

Yeah the T18/Dana 20 seems to be the best combo for big engines and great off roading with the granny gear. Still road worthy too. I found a T18/Dana 20 combo for $125 on craigs list but it was to far to go/ship.

Be careful on what you buy. Falcon _CMH is implying that all t18's have a granny low and the dont. Some of the jeep T18's came with the 6.32 granny low 1st, some have a 4.02 1st.

My bad didn't mean to imply anything thought he knew but if not MoC is correct not all T18s come with a granny gear and heed his warning.

From the title I thought you were asking about the build specs for the engine being a good combo, not if the trans choice was good..

I agree with the Novak site comment. Very useful for trans selection, fitment, and adapting advise.

http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge...on_gateway.htm

A bit of trivia for you fans, too.. Did you know transmissions are rated by Torque handling, not Horsepower handling? A trans can handle as much HP you put to it, theoretically, but put too much Torque... The case expands and splits from the gears pushing themselves away from each other, gears strip from being too thin, bearings fail from being too small....

Great info man! I love the Novak site for info but not their adapter prices
