Which Clutch?

When I drop/replace my tranny (T176) I'll also be swapping out my clutch, throwout bearing, pilot bushing and flywheel/teeth. I'm still in the planning stages and have a few questions:

On the Quadratec site, there are different clutches for different years with the same motor. I've got a '78 304 in my 83 CJ5, I'll assume I need the 78 clutch(?)

I'm still deciding if I want to try to do this myself or pay someone to do it. Are there any pointers you guys might have? Did I forget anything?

Do I just get one for a 304 regardless of year?

I am pretty sure you need a 10.5 in clutch with a 1 1/8 x 10 spline your pilot bushing should be .59 id I think summit has the best prices on these.

If you go to most parts stores and tell them you need a clutch for a jeet T-176 with a 304 they will look at you like your crazy. Tell them the year that the tranny came out of and you will be sure to get the correct clutch.

Yeah exactly. Problem is, I dont know what year the tranny is... the engine is a 78. The reason Im so confused is that Q-Tech has Clutches for years 80-81. What is special about 80-81? Not 76-83. Thats why Im confused... I'll just give them a call.

Since the T176/D300 were swapped into your Jeep, I'd just tell them you have a 1980 CJ with 304/T176 combo.. then, just double check the clutch disk on the tranny input prior to installing it to make sure it fits.. same with the throwout bearing and pilot bushing. Nothing sucks worse than wrestling around with a tranny on your chest for 2 hours only to find out the pilot bushing is the wrong one..

'80 CJ5 w/AMC360, T176, D44 w/Detroit 4.56, RE 4" YJ lift and 35s..

Rule of thumb is buy the flywheel that goes with the motor and buy the clutch kit that goes with the transmission. I would do as BESRK suggested since that is close to your configuration.

MINE: 1995 YJ/2.5L/115K/Completely Stock
MY DAD's: 1978 CJ7/ AMC 360 .030" over/ Motorcraft 2100/ Edelbrock Performer/ Proform HEI Ignition/ Hedman Headers with dual Flowmaster 40's/ Taurus Fan/ FK-35 Control/ Painless Harness/ Rebuilt T150 & Dana 20/ 4" Lift/ 31" Procomp Mud Terrains/ All Fiberglass. (SOLD)
MY BROTHER's: 1996 ZJ Limited/5.2L/117K & Completely Stock.(SOLD)
