Lookingfor a T5 trans replacement, what years use the same trans as my 82?

The T5 in my 82 CJ8 just started making noise and I would like to find another T5 to rebuild and then do a quick stab with the new trans.
I have a 82 CJ8, 258, D300.
Not looking to upgrade to a different trans, the jeep goes deer hunting every year and mushroom hunting in the spring, otherwise it hauls the grand kids to the ice cream parlor. No real off road use, so I don't need to upgrade.
What years used the same T5 as '82 that would be a direct swap?

BTW, current T5 goes
CLACK CLACK CLACK CLACK in 3rd
Clack Clack Clack Clack in 1st and
Click Click Click Click in 2nd
Assuming syncros, but not sure.
Just changed lube it the trans last fall, probably 500 miles ago.

Transmissions
The Borg Warner T4 & T5 transmissions were standard shift, four-speed & five-speed transmissions (respectively) found in 1982 to 1986 Jeep CJ models. They are light-duty transmissions found behind the AMC 150 (2.5L) I4 and the AMC 258 I6 (4.2L).


Keep in mind the I4 has a different front spline count but if you are rebuilding could use the one off of your old transmission. I would just rebuild the one you have 160 dollars master rebuild kit and call it done. The reverse idler gears tend to take a beating but are cheap to replace.

I had to rebuild the T5 in my Scrambler shortly after I got it running after the restore. It wasn't hard. Found good deals on parts online. About the only thing that was hard to find was a new mainshaft. My rear output bearing on the countershaft went out and took the countershaft with it. There is a good T5 factory manual I downloaded, and a good writeup with pictures of someone rebuilding a S10 T5 to go in a car (only difference in ours and that is that our main shaft is shorter and the tailhousing is different. It only took about one evening to rebuild and another to install after getting it tore down and the parts in. Hardest part was wrestling with the D300. That thing is made out of pure lead I think. It weighs about twice what the transmission did.

What is the tires size, gear ratio and mileage of your Scrambler?

Wow, been a busy summer.
Would be interested in trans, shipping to Nebraska, Zip 68025.
I had a trans shipped to me years ago stuffed in a kitchen trash can with lots of cardboard.
If your willing to ship and we can come to terms I'm in.

The trick that I do is I'll place a crate just under the D300. It will slide back, then just sit on the crate, and stay there. The trans I'll lift straight up through the tunnel cover. Without the Tcase attached, its easy to lift out, and put back in.

A long time ago I made the mistake of thinking that dropping the trans, tcase, and skidplate all together was a smart choice.

I made an adjustable bracket that bolts to my transmission jack. T-case angle matches the trannie bolts and it slides right on.

Oh, the trans jack from the rental place is a life saver (and back too).
Learned that a long time ago.
I also like to get the Jeep up pretty high on GOOD! stands, Its nice to be able to sit on the creaper with your head in the tunnel.

Lube is good.
Here is where I tell a story on myself.
Bought jeep a few years ago and hauled it home from Colorado, went through and changed all the fluids, diffs, brake, coolant, everything.
Drove it knocking around for a couple years, no long trips, just out and about.
Last fall it started to have TO bearing noise, so I jacked it up, drained the T case, and when I went to pull the trans plug that's when I remembered that the refill is a PITA and I thought "I'll do that one later". Two years earlier mind you, and probably 2K miles.
Pulled the plug and it went drip, drip, drip.
I drove a couple thousand miles with an empty trans.


So, YEAH, I need to replace or rebuild.
My plan is to find a good T5 and rebuild it first, then do a quick pull and stab.
My personality won't let me have a disassembled vehicle sitting for a couple weeks. Broke is OK but torn apart is bad. I might be OCD

Thought the lube in the trans was good, I stuck my pinky in the fill hole and could touch lube, but last night I got to thinking and pulled the fill plug on the D300 and got a strong pint out of it.
It appears that I've blown a seal.
