Default CJ questions

well since its tax time, I think some of the $$ will go toward the Willys

The oddfire 231 V-6 I am getting for it will be coming with a T14 and the Dana18 case that I need... however I can get a T150 with a Dana 20 from pavement pounder. Which would be the better tranny to use? I cannot use a model 20 t-case due to the offset rear axle from what I know...

School me in the T150 and T14, trying to figure out if its worth my time to get both... I think it is until I know if the T-14 works even...

The T-150 won't have the right input shaft for the Buick motor. However, I believe you would be able to throw the D18 on the back of the T-150, solving one of your problems. Depending on whether the V6 comes with an adapter ring, you may be able to play musical bellhousings and solve problem #2. I don;t know what to tell you about the input shaft issue. Haggar may know about that.

Or 4Bangler...

The T-150 is stronger than the T-14. The T-14 was behind 6 cyls, the T-150 was behind 6s and the V8 as well.

The T-14 though, was the factory trans behind the buikc V6, so might be better if you have a rare factory bellhousing. I think the input shaft lengths are different.

I believe then your T-14 would be a V6 versions, which would have a 10 spline output shaft, where the T-150 would have a 6 spline output shaft. However, most all other Dana 18 t-cases came with a 6 spline input gear, so finding a replacement wouldn't be tough..

As long as the T-14 works, though, its probably the better choice since it was the factory setup for a buick V6.

The gears I believe are 3.10 1st, 1.61 2nd, 1.00 third.

The T-150 is 2.99 1st, 1.75 2nd, 1.00 3rd

I've got one of those bellhousings that will allow you to bolt a Jeep tranny (T-150) to a Buick engine if you're interested. $50. Ann Arbor
