View Full Version : jeep T-5 five speed swap?

Does a C-J7 T-5 transmission swap onto the 300td engine? I am doing more freeway driving and I'd like to get less noise and better mileage than I'm getting with the stock four speed.

I don't think so. It might be possible to adapt it to the bell housing with the right inpug shaft, though. Stock T19 has easy-to-adapt bolt hole pattern from bell housing to transmission. Also might be possible to put in NV4500. I hear that has been done, too.

I don't think that is possible

Anything is possible!! But is it practicle? Most of these 'conversions' are simply harder or more complicated than most want to deal with.....

That said, I have a lot of book marks and info on trying to use different trans. If you want, I can try to share some of that info! Give me some ideas of what you have and what you want to do. I'd be glad to share what I know and what I have.... (I'm currently trying to put a '90 Cummins 12V diesel in my '73 Travelette Cab with a 6 spd NV5600 trans.... Oh boy, the fun . . . LOL )
