Well i had some bearings go out in my T14 so I was going to rebuild the trans. All of the gears are in bad shape due to the failure of the bearing and water damage. It looks as if it had water in there for a very long time. Unfortunately I havent even drove the jeep but about a mile since I bought it a few weeks ago. I am getting hammered on this thing money wise. My question is, what all transmission/ transfer case setups will be a direct swap into my 73 CJ5? Currently it has T14/Dana 20. I would rather not have to change the lengths of my driveshafts. With that said, i am in the market for both. :(
 
Looking through craigslist, I see many options for transmissions. T-15, T18, T-150. Whats the best route and like i mentioned in previous post, preferably a direct bolt up. Thank you.
 
The T14 and T-15 should use the same bolt pattern and both used a deeper than normal bell housing. There are a lot of variations to both the transmissions so you need to make sure you find a jeep version. As far as the T18 or T-150 a replacement bell housing will be needed. There are some CJ - T18 bell that were OEM from 1972 & up but in 1977 to 1979 CJ bell housings were drilled for the T18 and the T-150. Of course that is for the CJ version of the T18; all of the 1972 and up CJ bell housings will bolt to any AMC I6 or V8. If you do decide to go with a T18 a little more work and expense are involved.
