This adapter plate assembly is used to adapt a Ford 302 / 5.0L to the Jeep AX15 5 speed transmission. The adapter plate is .920” in length and is manufactured from 356-T6 heat treated aluminum alloy. Included in the adapter plate kit you will receive an adapter plate, pilot bushing for both early & late AX15, brass hydraulic fitting, retainer seal, 4.848” bearing retainer, pilot bushing, fastening hardware, and adapter instructions.
Note: This adapter plate design kit requires a Ford truck bell housing.
The overall transmission case length is 24.00”. The output shaft is 23 spline and protrudes approx .400”. AX15 from 1989-93 used an internal release bearing, while 1997-99 AX15 were switched to the external slave cylinder. We have seen both release systems used between 1994-96. The AX15 is very capable of handling the horsepower and torque of a V8 engine.
The input shaft length is 7-1/2” and has a spline dimension of 1-1/8”, 10 spline, which is same as Chevy. The pilot tip diameter is .590” on1989-96 models and .750” on 1997-99 models.
