Jeep CJ Bellhousing for T150 or T176.This is a direct OE replacement type part.
Q: Can I use the T150 bell housing that Omix sales with a T18 transmission? Can I just drill and tap new holes?
A:The swap is possible but not without some modification work. The T150 bell housing can be used with some alteration if used with a Jeep sourced T18 transmission. Alterations will include but not limited to drilling and tapping new lower mounting bolt holes for everything to line up correctly. It is important to note that further modifications will be needed if a Ford T18 is used, and it is quite possible that major reworking of the bell housing would be needed. Another problem to solve would be the need for a low profile bolt located just behind the clutch fork. If this bolt is not the correct size major problems with the fork not seating correctly on the pivot ball can accrue. As you can see there are a lot of variables involved with this type of switch and therefore OMIX does not note or promote the cross use of this bell housing for a T18 application. We will only be able support and warranty the part for its original application and use.
