Please can someone tell me what flywheel fits with this combination (from CJ 1001, YJ 1004, late YJ 1002 or all of them)? I want to use late wrangler belhousing, and CJ starter. Also, does CJ7 clutch fit ax15, especially are T5 and ax15 clutch bearing diameters the same? And what pilot bearing should I look for to use on ax15 and '81 258?
Actually it IS a flywheel, flexplates are used on automatic transmission applications.
Use the Flywheel and Starter that match the engine. Use the clutch that matches the transmission.
Someone will speak up about the proper pilot bearing.

Pilot can be had at NAPA, or ordered from AA. If your using the CJ starter use the CJ flywheel, as the spacing on the 2 wheels is different and therefor starts are a tad different, they are the same dimensionally though. THe discs are the same I believe, but I'd replace it myself.

The little stuff will kill me.
On the back burner for college.
I would use the cj flywheel/pressure plate with the biggest chevy (or wrangler) clutch disk it will handle. I'm not sure on the jeeps, but a lot of motors use the flywheel to balance the crankshaft. You'll notice a weight welded onto the back of the flywheel. I'm not sure on the pilot bushing, but Advanced adapters will have what you need. You may be able to just call and ask. They are usually really helpful. When you go to assemble it, use a clutch allignment tool for a wrangler.

Thanks, so 258 crank has different diameters for pilot bearings throughout the years? Just wondering if ax15 pilot bearing has different outer diameter than t5/t4/t176 pilot bearings; i.e. if I actually need one (I already got ax15 clutch kit that has also pilot bearing).
