This adapter plate assembly is used to adapt a GM Engine to the Jeep T176 4 manual transmission. The adapter plate is .875” in length and is manufactured from 356-T6 heat treated aluminum alloy. Included in the adapter plate kit you will receive an adapter plate, 4.686” bearing retainer, pilot bushing, gasket, seal fastening hardware, and adapter instructions.
- Chevy/GM Small Block V8
- Chevy/GM 4.3L V6
- Buick 225 & 231 V6
Note: With our adapter plates, we utilize a new front bearing retainer to obtain proper bell housing alignment. Chevy adapter plates we use a small index of 4.686”, (the larger index retainer, P/N 716051, can be substituted for the 5.125” bell housing).
The T-176 was used in CJs from 1980-1986 and other Jeep trucks from 1980-1987. The T-177 and T-178 were not used in CJs, only in other Jeep trucks.
The T-176, T-177, and T-178 are medium duty Ford transmissions manufactured by Tremec. They have an aluminum case with the casting number 2604203. This transmission has a 1 1/8" 10 spline input shaft and a 23 spine output shaft. These transmissions are very similar except for gear ratios. These transmissions use the standard bolt pattern used by Ford transmissions.
