Do you have the correct bellhousing?

Pilot bushing is different too.

What T-case are you using dana 20?

If your using a Jeep cj t-18 trans, which will use a D-20 t-case it will be passenger side drop t-case and your "YJ" is a drivers drop case.
Which means it will work only if you swap your front axle out to a passenger drop.(which you can find out of a jeep CJ or an early Waggy D-44 P-drop axle, etc)
If anyone disagrees with me speak up, thx.
