Default Kawasaki H2

hi guys
I pulled the tranny and transfer case yesterday, it seems like the bell housings have the same bolt pattern. I measured the center to center spacing og the mounting bolts and it is the same. Is there anything else I need to worry about fitting besides the input shaft swap? I don't have the 230 out of the 715 yet so i couldn't just unbolt the bellhousings and try it. Oh and does any one know where to get a good breakdown of the assembly of the t 18/t98?

thanks for everyones input
eric

Here's some T98 info:

And here's the T18a info:

Also wouldn't this be everything you would need to swap the input shaft?

Good Luck.

Took a couple more pictures to show the frame perches for the motor mounts.








Here is the firewall clearance, the engine is tilted back some right now, and this truck has a 2.5" body lift on the cab.


Here are the front braces for clearance.

Will a Ford 2wd T18 bolt up to an AMC V8 bell housing?

I have the same question. Could you swap this into our T98, and then bolt it to an AMCV8 bolt housing to an AMCV8?

Default Exaust manifolds for buick 350

hi guys thanks for all the information, that shows exaclty what i needed. But the t98 already has the short shaft and needs the long shaft out of the t18 to use with the J20 bellhousing and spacer. So using the partsmike kit would just be changing to a different short shaft.

hammer thanks for the pics so i kinda know what to look for when lining everything up.

thanks eric

fisherman, my truck came with a buick engine in the form of a pile of parts in the bed. the bellhousing bolted to the tranny looks like a chevy. it might be what you want. email me if you know what the part number is and i will get back to you. im either going stock or with a sbc. l.watkins

Yes it will. You have to use a Jeep T176 bellhousing and an AA conversion pilot bushing that sticks out a little to make up the difference in the Foprd t18 short shaft (6.5").

This is what I am going to do if the T98 input shaft swap doesn't work out.

This input shaft would be the correct length if used with the t176 bellhousing. The question at hand is will it all fit together and will the new input shaft mate correctly to the snout on the mainshaft. If it does fit, this would be a cheap easy swap to put the Jeep V8 in front of the factory T98.
