If you don't even know if this thing drives yet. Hold off on the 2500 $. If it has the T18a ,which has granny gear 6.32:1 or whatever that would add value to it for me. It would be cool to have if you do wheel it. 2500$ ? I guess your'e not going to open the top cover on the tranny and bottom cover on the transfer case and take a peek in there ,so you're going on the guys word that the axles, transmission and/or transfer case works and doesn't grind or anything like that. If you do decide to take his word I wouldn't pay the 2500$ for it unless he is knowledgeable about the drive train and engine. I guess the body is salvageable as long as its not full of bondo. Think of all the stuff you might be replacing on that jeep. If you're going to be replacing a lot of stuff on that jeep. I would get it closer to 2000 $ than 2500 $

Thanks agear, I will be putting the skid pan back on when I pick it up so I can drive it before paying him the money. I have to be able to load onto the trailer and do not want to take any chances moving it before the tranny and motor are back in the right position anyway. I am hopefull that it has the T18a but I want know until I can drive it but I believe its just the regular T-18 unless it was swapped at a later date I dont think the T-18a came out until 77' (is that right??). Lots of good points, I think I will pull the covers like you suggested as well, no reason not to. Thanks!

Thought I'd share

found this here. http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/t18_t19.htm

If it is a close ratio T18 (4.02:1), I be a lot less interested than the 6.32:1 box. I have a early ford T18 with the 6.32:1 and its super awesome!!

Jeep T18
Jeep released 12 known versions of the T18 transmissions from 1966 and 1984, with the greatest variations being in input shaft configurations and gearing. The battle of working with these is compounded if you did not actually witness the transmission's removal from the donor vehicle.
All Jeep T18's locate their PTO port on the driver's side.
Generally, most CJ T18's from 1972 to 1975 had the close-ratio, fitted with a front adapter plate in cast iron to the AMC bellhousing. These transmissions had the narrow ratio gearing (4.02:1 first gear). These 1972-1975 Jeep CJ T18's adapt to GM Engines with our #1415 kit.
1976 was a crossover year for the Jeep CJ T18, featuring either the 4.02 or 6:32 first gear and no front adapter as previously. Both these and all CJ T18's through 1979 had the shortest of the Jeep input shafts, measuring 7.43" of stickout.
All Jeep CJ's from 1977 to 1979 had wide-ratio T18 with the 6.32:1 first gear. No front adapter plate is present on these models. 1976-1979 T18 transmissions can be adapted to GM V6 or V8 by use of a T18 adapter kit that we manufacture, kit #1879. Jeep CJ T18's from 1976-1978 may be cast with #13-01-097-907.
The 1979 Jeep CJ T18 is similar to the 1976-1978 versions, except that it features a wider front bearing and a different top cover with aluminum shift forks and a different shift pattern with reverse gear being over to the right and down. These T18's may have a case casting number of 13-01-065-904 and a top cover casting of #13-01-065-906.

cruise through that website and there should be enough info to figure out exactly what tranny you have on there.

The T18 is a big plus. I love mine! Here's a quick trick to get the skid plate back on: Weld a piece of 2" angle to the outside of the frame right where it will touch the skid plate (it sticks out about 2" from the frame on both sides). Then drill a couple of holes through the angle and the skid and run some 7/16" grade 8 bolts and nuts on there. I'll admit it's a hillbilly fix, but it works. I did that (and I am a hillbilly).

That may be a good fix until I can try and get the old bolts out! Drilling out the old bolts and retaping should be fun! LOL The good news is that there is a 1/2 inch sticking out on each of the three that broke, so with a little grease, heat and time I might be able to wiggle them out.

just weld a nut or bolt on the end and impact it out, the heat from the weld will break up the thread junk, and boom done. (easier said than done I'm sure)
