This kit is designed to fit the GM block with a 168T flywheel and the Gen 3 / LS engines.
This adapter bellhousing assembly is used to adapt the GM 4.3, V8 to the Jeep AX15, 5 speed manual transmissions. The bellhousing kit includes a 356 T-6 aluminum bellhousing, universal dust cover plate, pilot bushing, AX15 bearing retainer assembly, seal, throw-out arm, slave cylinder push rod, slave cylinder push rod end, ball pivot, fastening hardware, and adapter instructions.
Note: When using a 168th flywheel on your GM 350 engine a gear reduction starter is required. We offer gear reduction starters (p/n 22-0001 & 22-0003). Late model GM 4.3 V6 with an aluminum oil pan require starter 22-0001. LS engine require starter 22-0002.
The AX15 was used in model years 1989-99. It has a overall transmission case length of 24.00”. The output shaft has a positive stickout and is 23 spline. The AX15 was found coupled to the Jeep 4.0L. Through out the years we have seen two different input pilot tip dimensions. 1989-94 used a .590” diameter. 1995-99 used a .750” diameter. AISIN WARNER manufactured many different syles of this transmission that was used by various car manufactures. Our 712567V only fits Jeep AX15 and we have no tech data to help with any other transmission.
