The previous pictures were a 1983. This one is a 1979. Top picture is the same on both. Bottom rear is a little different, but stilled just welded.

Good to know. I'll grind down the welding that cracked and redo it then.

Thanks, Bill.

Got the engine and tranny out tonight....it was a real fother mucker. Engine did not want to separate from the trans bellhousing...took a prybar to convince it to release.

I have to go to work for a couple hours tomorrow, but I'll start tearing the engine down in the afternoon.

Great project, but keep it moving life has a way of stealing time and money from these kinds of endeavors. Keep us posted.

It's a multitasker, I like it a lot! I will be using the HF engine hoist with new chain to put it back in, once it's rebuilt.

You guys know that my goal is to restore my CJ back to showroom condition, but I have a bit of a dilema. My T-150 needs to be rebuilt, which I'm capable of doing, but once I'm done buying the full rebuild kit, I'm in it for about $500. I found a guy with almost 40 years experience in rebuilding manual transmissions, who is selling a rebuilt CJ T-18 with the 6.32 1st for $525 plus shipping. The idea is very tempting.

What would you guys do?

Fred I'd be very tempted to get the T-18. Guess it depends on how you plan to use it and just how close to original you'd like to stay. No doubt it would be a great upgrade.

Well, my original plan is still the same, no off-road rock crawling or mud bogging, but that 1st gear would definitely come in handy, if I ever get into a bind.

I guess it boils down to what I want to do. I can always keep the original T-150, eat the core charge, and set it aside in the garage...if I ever decide to enter it in the Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, I can always put it back to original, LOL!

regarding the T18.
I have 2 different books that state that the T18 is the strongest transmission
Jeep ever made.

I hope you do make a rebuild capable of the Pebble Beach show.

Fred, I've been thinking about your transmisson for a couple hours, off and on. Trying to think of the best way to go, That T-18 would be cool but, for your intended use a T-176 would be better (also means a Dana 300 ($). My trail CJ 5 has a 6.32-1 T-18, 4.30 gears and 36" tires. It had a T-176 before, and I wheeled it hard without problems (just had to feather the clutch more)I wanted the lower first for rocks and stuff.

So, because of the added cost of buying a 300 TC. I would stay with the T-150, I can't imagine needing 4 wheel low and the 6.32-1 for your use. Your jeep when finished wouldn't pull the tractor or the dually pickup out of a stuck anyway,with either tranny, its just doesn't have enough weight.

On edit, my DD has a 258/T-4,Dana 300/ 2.72 gears, and 31" tires. I think it would pull a loaded hay (3 or 4000#) wagon in 1st gear in 4 wheel low without a problem. Stopping would be another matter.
