Clutch kit for 4.2 & T176???

So tax time was good to me this year and I can finally Finnish my drive train swap.
Going in will be a fresh 258 from a '80 CJ, and a T176 w/D300 and LowMax 4:1

my problem is I do not know what clutch to get for the swap.

I know that the clutch is not the same as the T150 that is in it now.

Would this: http://www.quadratec.com/products/52002_02.htm Be the correct kit?

If not what would be?

Thanks.

Yep but you can find one cheaper. You match the clutch to the engine not the transmission.

That is not a bad price. I was just looking and the kit for mine is $110 at rockauto.com

You match the clutch disc to the pilot shaft, the flywheel to the engine and the pressure plate the the flywheel.

I think that where I get confused, is that there were multiple "4 speed" trans missions used in CJs and the parts places don't ask what specific trans it is, only if it's a "4 speed".
I'm unsure of what CJ originally had the 258 and T-176. I think they were '80, BUT I was also thinking that SR4s were also offered that year.

You either get a 10 spline clutch disc for the transmission input shafts used behind the 6 and 8 cyl OR a 14 spline disc used on the transmission input shaft of the 4 cyl. Both are the same size if I remember correctly.

Holy cow this thread is filled with confusing advice.

If the engine is a 1980, the T176 with also have been avaialble for 1980. Ask for a clutch for a 1980 CJ with a four speed! No need to make it more difficult than that. The SR4 would have used the same clutch. The one in the link would work, but personally I wouldn't buy a clutch from Quadratec. Get it locally.

Any 258 is going to have the same flywheel and clutches are transmission specific, contrary to the first reply of this thread.

You could use the same clutch that the T150 uses as long as the clutch disc was swapped out. The T150 has a 1-1/16" input shaft and the T176 has a 1-1/8" input. They would both use the same pressure plate and throwout bearing.

Thank you, This is what I wanted to know. I was trying to make things as simple on my self as possible by using a hypothetically available jeep configuration for my mods. It's easier at ta parts counter and easier for me to remember years down the road. I was just thrown off by the two 4 speeds being available in the same time frame with the same engine. I didn't want o end up getting a clutch kit for a "6 cyl 4 spd CJ" and end up with a clutch I couldn't use.

It sounds like I was able to keep it simple and can order any clutch kit for a '80 CJ with a 4 speed, and not worry about getting the wrong clutch.
