tranny swap ?

I was told a T176 4spd. trans was a direct swap for a T150spd. Is this correct. I have 1978 cj5 with 304 and T150 and would like to change to a T176. 4wheel hardware has the same part number for both bellhousings so I'm thinking this might be true. Anyone know for sure?

The bellhousing will bolt right up. You will have to change the pilot bushing, and clutch disc. I'm currently doing the same swap and I've gotten as far as the driveshafts. My T-176 is married to a Dana 300 and there is an adapter that makes the length of the whole setup a good bit longer so now my rear driveshaft needs to be shorter and the front longer. Now we're talking more money espesially if i go with a CV style driveshaft for the rear. Does anyone no a good bargain on driveshafts?

Chump,
I have the Dana 20 transfer case and I could be wrong, but it looks like I won't be needing an adapter. As far as the driveshafts go, this is a ground up restoration and both of mine are shot. I'm having mine rebuilt locally for a little less than half of what new ones would cost. Thanks for the info.
