How to Identify a CJ T 176

I'm shopping for a T-176. How can I verify that it came from a CJ. I've heard that the input shafts are different. Is there an easy way to tell?

Thanks

Check out Novak Adapters, they will have a good picture of one. Pretty much you are looking for a curved at the bottom shifter, and a smooth case.

This is how I distinguish from SR4's or T4's.

T-176

Sorry, I didn't explain well enough.

I know what a T-176 looks like. I understand that they were used in many Jeep vehicles and that I will need one that came specifically from a CJ rather than one of the Jeep pick ups.

My question is, how do I know if the one I'm looking at is from a CJ?

Is there a measurement for the input shaft etc.?

Thanks

As found on The Tremec T176, T177 & T178 Jeep Transmissions - Novak Conversions. "The transmission has a 7-1/2" input shaft (stick-out length) with 1-1/8" x 10 splines and a neoprene front bearing retainer assembly. The pilot tip is ~19/32" in diameter."

Hope this helps, there is only one 176 or other family model (as stated above) type transmission that is the ones in CJs. I was not aware that these came in any jeepsters or anything else. But Novak has just about all the information you need to know about this transmission. IF you have any other questions I would be happy to help out.

IE. have you thought about going with a t18?

Got it now. Thanks.

It was the stick out length that was of concern.

Yeah Try a T18 if you want it to hold up to a V8.
