Called Novak to see if I could find an adapter for the T98 to Slant 4. Here is their reply.

I have a '61 - '63 Pontiac slant 4cyl (half of a 389) that I need to mate to a T98 Jeep transmission.
Here is a picture of the front of my T98 (not sure what the silver thing is?

Thanks again,

Hi JB,

Good question. Do you know what the bolt pattern of the engine block to bellhousing is? Or, even better, do you know if this bellhousing has the Muncie / Saginaw four-bolt pattern on the back? If you are not sure, send a picture and I can tell you.

As to the T98, maybe. It has a long input shaft which may make adapting and other issues difficult, but it may be possible. How long is the input shaft from the front face of the transmission?

Eric at Novak
435.753.2513 x20

So I sent them the T98 Output Shaft Measurements.

Well everyone, that exhaust port on the opposite side of the main exhaust manifold is a heat riser.

A small exhaust pipe connected the bottom of the intake manifold to the exhaust header in order to heat the intake. Pontiac V8 engines have ports through the heads from the center exhaust ports to the intake manifold mating surface. The intake manifold has a passage that lets exhaust gasses flow through the manifold between the heads. Since the 4 cyl engine doesn't have the second head, the heat riser pipe does the job.

Hi Rollbar, looks like you got quite a bit of work ahead. I am no mechanic but I can already see the Jeep is going to come together very nicely.

Turns over (need to do a compression test) but looks good so far.

Clean oil, clean valve cover, clean head.

OK, I checked on the Buick v6 and it has a tick and a knock.

PO pulled it out and swapped in a new motor.

He wants to sell it for $200.00 but not sure what all needs to be done to it or how much it will cost to rebuild.

With that said, does anyone have a recommendation on a power plant that will mate (w/ease, using an adapter) with the T98 ?

Thanks,
Jim

Your first measurement it what Novak is looking for. The distance from the face of the transmission to the end of the input shaft.

Wrong grill for this.

Sorry, I should have read more of the thread. You had already figured this out.
