I don't think it will matter what kit you get as long as it is for the T176 trans and not for a T4/5. I think the TO bearing inside diameter is smaller on the T4/5 transmissions but I don't have my old front bearing cap around anymore to give you dimensions from but you would think they would be the same size.

You have to specify what transmission you have in your Jeep as the 'Parts Monkeys' just don't have the knowledge that several types and brands were available.

Advance auto gave me a full refund on the kit and replaced the part that broke due to a wrong TO bearing. So..... I looked up the part number to a LUK clutch kit and bought it. Everything will be in on tue and we should be putting it back in on thur. I will post up again when we get it back together. Thanks for the help everyone.

Did you get a new seal that goes in the nose cap(sleeve)that broke?
Sounds like AA did the 'rite' thing, to help you.

If the new bearing retainer cap doesn't come with one then no I haven't got one yet. I will look into that and see if I can get one ordered ASAP! I need a new one by thur so I can get it back together in time. Thanks again

My CJ had shims in the clutch mounting arm. If you shim that location it would allow a longer adjustment rod.

I lost mine when i pulled my clutch but replaced them with some drilled out flat bar steel.

Good luck

My bro got all the parts in today and test fit everything. The TO bearing works with the new tranny bearing retainer cap sleeve, fits perfect on the clutch fork and fits on the pressure plate well (unlike the TO bearing from AA which didn't even touch all three arms). So, tomorrow night we r gonna put it all back together and see if we can get it ready for family vacation in Durahmtown next week. I will post up when done.

Everything went together very nicely! New seal and retainer cap in place, new disc and pressure plate and new TO bearing all work together perfectly. Drove the jeep around for about 5 min. Thanks everyone for all the help and support!

For those reading this with a similar clutch problem, I ended up using a LUK clutch kit (which is awesome). Make sure you get some blue thread locker for your flywheel and pressure plate bolts and know that if my brother and I can do it just about anyone can do it, just have patience and take your time.

Sorry, Gido. I read thru the thread too fast.

I'm sure Max did something worth congratulating, too.
