  1. Jeep CJ Forum
    Looking for some guidance here everyone, I'm currently doing a frame up restoration on my 1979 CJ5. First time I have ever done this I should add. Put a 350 SBC in it and have the adapter kit for an AX15 transmission as I have read for hours and sounds like that is the best fit for the motor...
  2. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I am rebuilding my ax15 and got new synchro sleeves, but the old ones rim is flat and the new one isn’t. Will the new ones work? For 3-4 synchro sleeves and 5th gear sleeve. Also what orientation do the go? New is on the left old is on the right
  3. Engines & Drivetrain
    After rebuilding my ax15 and assembling the cases I had an issues with the shafts not being able to spin after bolting in the front bearing retainer. I took it back off and found that the input shaft bearing is sticking out 2-3mm with a gap between the snap-ring and the front case. The front...
  4. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    First off, hello. I've used this forum for a couple of years but made an account just now. I have an 89 YJ that I swapped an M57 diesel engine into. I've had an issue with my AX15 grinding in higher gears and have had no luck figuring this out. A little background on the build. M57 is a...

    I recently bought a 91 xj that has an ax15 swap. The seller said she was having problems shifting. Turns out there’s no tv cable on the throttle body. But I can’t for the life of me figure out where is the tv cable supposed to connect to this transmission. I’ve read through the forums but...
  6. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I have a 1991 xj with an AX15 swapped into it. The clutch went bad and I can’t seem to find a new clutch for it. It has an internal slave cylinder. Can anyone share where to find a clutch?
  7. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Planning some work on the 2004 TJ, and recently ordered a Centerforce Clutch Throwout Bearing from Quadratec, and just realized that it is listed to fit Wrangler from 94-03, P/N N1764. Centerforce's website has the N1764 listed to fit a range of models and engines, but under separate listings...
  8. Engines & Drivetrain
    Anyone know if I can rotate the shift lever of my ax15 180 degrees? I've installed a 4.0 in my cj7 and now it's time for the ax15. It sits back about 3 in more than my t5 and has a 1.5 in bend towards the back. Can I just rotate this to move my assembly forward?
  9. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I found a transfer case out of a '94 YJ and wanted to put it in my '99 XJ, well, I already put it in... unfortunately, the rear output shaft is a couple inches shorter and so when I went to test it out, it wasn't long before I heard the rear driveshaft fall to the ground. Do I have to take the...
  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello everyone, I've relied heavily on this forum in the past but have never actually posted before! I recently did the mean max rebuild and it went smoothly. I went to drive it and now I have 2 issues that maybe independent if or related to each other... 1) I can sometimes shift into 5th gear...
  11. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I bought a new Ax15 and NP231 to install in my 87 YJ. Everything went fine going in, new clutch and new external slave. All parts were sourced from Novak as a turn key transmission swap getting away from my BA10/5 that was locked up. Anyway my trouble is with the new transmission installed...
  12. Jeep CJ Forum
    Does anyone have some pictures of this swap? I just got mine done and trying to decide how to bend the shifters. I bought the wrangler AX15 tunnel cover, but it still needs some manipulation in order to get into 2nd,4th and reverse. I also had to hack off the cup holders on my center console...
  13. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 87 YJ with the 4.2. When I got it, it had the NV3550 with a NP207. The transmission is totally shot. Beyond rebuilding. I can get a Ax15 relatively cheap. I have seen plenty of posts with swapping in either the AX15 or the NV3550 to the YJ but not going from the NV3550 to the AX15...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Been searching a lot but I haven't had any luck with removing the shifter boot or replacing the plastic nut on the bottom of the shifter rod. My AX15 has pretty crisp shifts but pops out of 1st sometimes (more often lately and mostly when under more load like starting from stop on a hill). 140k...
  15. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    My grand daughter lives 800 miles away in Raleigh and her 1995 XJ has suddenly locked out 4th and 5th gear. If I were closer I'd probably tear it down and inspect the internal shift forks/linkage, but I was hoping(?) someone with regular hand tools might be able to pull the boot from inside the...
  16. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I recently ate up my AX5 which I've read many places isn't abnormal. I own a 1994 YJ with 4" Suspension lift, 2.5l 4 cyl with stock Dana 30 and 35 axles. I'm looking to pull an AX15 from a junkyard tomorrow, but before I pick one to yank out, I wanted to see if anyone here has any experience...
  17. Engines & Drivetrain
    Just finished rebuilding an AX15 5 Speed for a build that I am doing. While I am not a transmission technician, I did find this to be a rather simple project. The following are 3 videos that outline the steps that I took to accomplish this. While this is not your How-To video, it does show...
  18. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I am working on a auto to manual swap and have a donor zj. The pilot bearing is one piece I will need to just buy new, but I keep ending up with two choices, 53009180 or 53009181, the Omix-ada parts are 16910.10 or 16910.08. Is there a difference? The slave is external. Thanks!
  19. Engines & Drivetrain
    I need to visit my girlfriend a couple hours away at college tomorrow night so today I figured I might as well replace the rear output shaft seal since It slowly leaks fluid and gets flung all over the place when it hits the drive shaft. Im kinda stumped at the moment and didnt put everything...
