Ever since I bought my Scrambler I have been trying to figure out if I have the 904 or 999. Didn't even think about the 727.
I randomly ran across a picture of a 727 compared to the 904 and low and behold I think I have the 727. Below is a pic. I am basing this on the pasenger side bump out at the front. Just asking here for final confirmation before proceeding with the Lokar and Ididit mods. thanks!
Only an AMC 727 will fit a CJ AMC V8 or inline 6. Those were found in FSJ's, so yes that part is correct. Any transmission that has a length difference of an inch or more compared to stock is going to require driveshaft changes.
Yeah!! I did the comparison back before my swap. I don't remember exactly the numbers, but was very happy about the 727... It was badly abused, but the guy swore it was fine. Never was right... I am sure if I had more patience and waited to rebuild it, it would be unstoppable with the Lomax kit in my 300.... However I wanted it right away and the trip 9 was ready to go.
Still happy with it, just would like the lower first gear!

Up here - we go by results, when you preached, people slept. When he flew, people prayed.

There is a way to get a lower gear, but it's hard to find the part. There were 727 used in some IH based bobtail (single rear axle) dump trucks. These had a 3.15:1 first gear. A friend of mine found one of these ultra-rare gearsets in a junkyard truck and it makes a huge difference in crawling. I bought his old 727 as he had built it with some premium parts.
