'81 CJ7 project is going well, but I've hit a snag and need some help from the wise ones. When I bought my jeep, it came with an automatic that someone had retro-fitted. I decided to revert back to a manual tranny and found a cheap T4 - I know, I know... not the best choice - but I'll upgrade later. I just need it to move.

My problem is that I need a flywheel and when I search parts sites (like Morris 4X4), it seems they only list '72-'79, and '82-'87 flywheels for a 258 w/ manual tranny. I guess 80's and 81's came without flywheels :rolleyes:.

Seriously though, can anyone tell me if one of these will work for a '81, and if not what type do I need?

Thanks in advance,

Wes

Well Wes, as you might already know about Jeeps it's hard to make definitive statements about them.
I bought a 81' CJ5 4-speed new & it did for sure come with a flywheel.:laugh:
I know on V8's there are two different types of flywheel due to a change in mounting flange design. That was like 69'-70' though & I'm unaware of any similar change on the 6.

I get it, I'm a Jeep owner and ad-block detectors kinda stink but ads are needed on this site. This is a CJ site, all the ads are set for autos (some times others get through.) I cannot make them just for Jeeps but I try.

Please allow ads as they help keep this site running by offsetting the costs of software and server fees.
