stumped

hey I just bought an 83 cj-7 renegade with a 304. The guy I bought it from told me the engine and tranny came out of an 80 cj. My problem is I am trying to figure out what type of tranny it is. It is a 4 speed man. But thats about all I can tell you. Just how I can identify what tranny it is i.e. t4, t177 ect. Thanks for the great thread.

You are going to have to either get the casting number off the side of the tranny or figure out what shifter you have. Here is a good write up for you to look at to identify it.

Cj7 Amc swap again, tranny ??

I recently purchased a 84 CJ 7 and have 360 I'm going to swap in. My question is i want to use the th400 tranny and BorgWarnern 1339 t case that came out of my 77 wagoneer in the CJ. Is this setup going to be to long to use in a CJ or has anyone els used this setup? Just wondering if anyone has any good info for me or any problems I may run into, or should I look for a different tranny and t-case setup.

Thanks to anyone who can lend some help.

Mike

I pull just the engine & then I pull the trans/t-case. Of course I am using a lift for the trans.

360 swap. Flywheel Q's...

I've read all 11 pages and my question is danced around, even asked ,but not answered anywhere I see. I have an 84 CJ7 with a 6 cyl with a bad bottom end noise I am looking to replace. I have been on the fence with just a stock 6 replacement or a 360 from a Wagoneer. I was all set to do the 360 swap and then it dawned on me that I will need a flywheel as they were usually autos. I see the 360's are externally balanced. What is involved with aquiring a flywheel for a manual trans? Can I just buy a new flywheel and bolt it on? Or does the whole rotating assembly need to come out and be balanced with the new flywheel? This may make or break the swap so I'd like to know before I get into it. I will need motor and frame mounts, new exhaust etc... as you all know so I don't need any unforseen costs. Any guidance woudl be most appreciated. I am new here but will likely spend a good deal of time here in the near future. I will properly introduce myself when I get a little more time, but thanks!

You can just buy a new or reman flywheel and bolt it on. One bolt hole is actually offset from the rest of the pattern so it can only bolt up one way. This means it will be properly balanced, but they can be a bit pricey, especially if you don't have a core.

your flywheel has to be for a 360 - each motor has its own flywheel - you will need the frame mount for the cj like in the pic and you will also need the block mounts for a cj the full size jeep will not work

How much for the mounts?
I see the flywheels on Ebay for $115. I am still wrestling with the idea (and cost!)
Suggestions for exhaust? I love loud stuff especially Flowmasters , however I think that may get old quick in a topless Jeep, so I was considering some generic turbo type mufflers and headers. Any guidance on headers? I see 2 types, fenderwell and "regular" I guess you could say. Can someone explain the difference and suggest one or the other? Thanks!!!!

I have a 84 cj7 had the 258 now swapping to the 360. My question is what headers can I run with a T999 or T727 tranny? I have both transmissions and not sure which one I'm going to run behind the 360. I want my exhaust to run out the back but would be ok with it turning down at the rear axle. Anyone with pics of headers on a auto tranny cj7 please send them to tonyd1976@aol.com

Hmmm. Great shot! I can see where they may offer some clearance issues on a regular Jeep. Would you suggest those, or regular headers or just factory cast iron manifolds (where I am leaning towards)
