This adapter plate assembly is used to adapt a Ford Small Block V8 Engine to the Jeep T-86 & T14 3 speed manual transmission. The adapter plate is 2.400” in length and is manufactured from 356-T6 heat treated aluminum alloy. Included in the adapter plate kit you will receive an adapter plate, Ford bearing retainer pilot bushing, seal, fastening hardware, and adapter instructions.
