T-18 Ford to 304AMC

Currently i have the 304 with a T-150/ Dana20 set up and i have a T-18 with granny 1st out of a ford sitting in the shop. Question is what all do i need to make it work? Will the T-18 bolt up to the bell housing and t-case i have or do i need adapters? I also have the t-case out of the ford i believe its a 205,(its all out of a 78' 3/4ton) should i go with this t-case or the model 20 i am currently running? Any input is greatly appreciated! thanks.

Here are some helpful links regarding T18s, short shaft kits, and a short shaft rebuild. Read the Novak link for the answer to the bellhousing question. The first link was a recent T18 post you can reference. I think these will help.

You need a adaptor for the Dana 20 and a new mainshaft for the T18 to mate to a Dana 20 or 300, the Ford input (main drive gear, short shaft) will work fine with the right pilot bushing. The Ford T18 with the 205 is a driver side drop, CJ needs a passenger side drop.

If you need a clutch, the whole kit from LUK is P# 01-015. OR if you need just the jeep to Ford pilot bushing it's Novak # P3181176B @$17.60
