  1. I recently acquired an AX-15 transmission and want to swap out my current BA-10/5 for it. I don't have any donor parts from the original vehicle, so I need to make sure I purchase all the correct components. If I purchase this adapter, I should be able to use the existing x-member and mount, correct? http://www.advanceadapters.com/products/716007--nv3550--ax15-crossmember-mount-kit-for-jeep-yj-wranglers/ And I know the 4wd shift linkage is different, so I'll need something like this? http://www.advanceadapters.com/products/715545--transfer-case-shifter-bracket
  2. Just bought an 87 short bed, 4.0 2 WD a few months ago. Originally white and sold new in CA. Its been repainted factory red sometime in its life and has the original tan vinyl bench. Bought it from a young guy in K.C. and had it shipped to Ohio. I think it was parked for awhile because the original 5 spd tranny was bad. The guy I bought it from swapped in an AX15 with help from his dad. He also put in a gauge cluster with the tach. I wanted a 2WD because I'm only going to drive it in fair weather. Pretty sure it only has 102k on it. Previously I owned a 91 Cherokee Laredo and drove it daily fo
  3. Interested if anyone has a spare or leftover internal slave AX-15 bellhousing lying around they'd like to part ways with, loan out, or donate. Looking into making my own engine adapter and want to avoid removing my trans just for dimensions... worth a shot!
  4. It's been awhile since I last posted anything but I've been busy with the birth of my second girl. Now she's 3 months old and my oldest is now seven. I'm also a firefighter at to different departments and going to school part-time. But during my off time occasionally I get the chance to tinker on on the Comanche. Here recently I've been working on trying to get my Ford 9 inch in. I'm at the point of setting my pinion angle and butting everything back up. My next big project will be replacing the Aw4 auto with a manual. Not sure right now if I wanna go nv3550 or ax-15. I've heard that
  5. Is this a good kit? <AX15 Master Rebuild Kit - Power Torque> Does it include everything I need? Also, any good how-to's or DIY tutorials that y'all know about for a first time rebuilder?
  6. Instilling the Novak Cable shifter on an AX-15/NP242 combo I was in need of a new transfer case linkage setup after I replaced my BA-10/5 & NP231 with an AX-15 & NP242. I purchased the Novak Cable Shifter Kit for$195.85 shipped from Novak-Adapt.com. If you don't want to spend nearly $200 on a cable shifter, then take a look at THIS DIY Linkage, I rediscovered it after I ordered my Novak kit. Before I installed my kit I read over Flint54's install thread. I did not do all the modifications he did, such as to the shift gate. I don't know if Novak changed the kit between the time Fl
  7. Alright guys, I'm going from a 2WD Peugeot (internal slave) to a 4WD AX-15 (external slave) in my recently acquired '88 SporTruck. I've disconnected the lines at the slave end and clamped the hose for the time being. My question is, since I'm going to an external slave, can I just mate the hydraulic line from the Peugeot master to an AX slave? The master cylinder looks to be fairly new (PO said it was, anyway). Just trying to save money if I can because the whole hydraulic system, prefilled, is $100+ on RockAuto. Just the slave is ~$35.
  8. Hello, I remember reading on here that the 2.5L and the 2.8L but have the same bellhousing bolt pattern, so does that mean with a dakota 2,5L bellhousing one could mount a AX-15 to a 2.8L?
  9. I'm interested in buying a project Comanche Jeep. I'm looking to put Dana 60 axles in it and a 4.0L stroker and fresh paint. I have big plans. I need a solid platform. To make my life easier I'd like to start off with a 4.0 engine so I have the wiring harness already and whatnot. I'd like to re-use the stock AX-15 transmission I would like it to be a short bed and if possible it can come factory with 4wd. Also no rust would be a plus. Text me at (631) 806-1839 for any leads, I'm located in Western New York. I don't mind driving within reason to pick one up.
  10. Hey everybody, I've been trying to change the fluid in my '89 4.0 5-speed for about a week now. Started off getting interrupted by surprise storms, then realized I didn't have a 15/16" wrench so I ordered one, then realized I've got a seriously stuck fill plug and it looks like the previous owner lent it to a teething baby 'cause it's all kinds of chewed up. Couldn't get it off with the 15/16" and started doing some research. Been soaking it in a little WD-40 but I'm about to go pick up some PB Blaster. Saw a few mentions of trying a pipe wrench, but that didn't work. Also saw mention of h

    Mj Wanted

    I am looking for a Comanche. As of right now I have a 2001 xj and have always wanted an MJ but due to going to college and paying for it all by myself its hard. I would like to find a 87-91 Mj with a 4.0 and AX-15 4 wheel drive. Preferably drivable miles don't matter. I appreciate everyone's help.
  12. What Jeeps can I pull a 231 transfer case from for a successful mate to an AX-15 transmission? (Note: the AX-15 in possession is from a '96 XJ) In my research, I have found out that the AX-15 has a 23 spline output shaft and the 231 needed has to have a short nosed 23 spline input. Is this correct? Gurus, please bestow some information upon this noob. :bowdown:
  13. I really would like to find a whole jeep with similar drive-train option I currently have making for easy swap. PM or post if east coast going to need to be shipped,trailed,ect. let me know what you guys got, thanks.
  14. I just got back from picking this bad boy up... It's an AX-15 from a '96 XJ that the seller claims was rebuilt within the last year or so. No bellhousing unfortunately, but I did get the crossmember and a few various other parts. All for $175. This is the start of my '86 2.5L/AX-4 to 4.0L/AX-15 swap. I posted this in MJ tech because I need to clarify some things and I'm hoping y'all can help me out. First, I know I need to find a bellhousing, shift fork, external slave and all that stuff. The thing I'm not sure of is if a NP231 from an '88 or '90 XJ will bolt to this transmission si
  15. In a few I am going down to a buddy's shop and attempt to install the Novak Cable shifter. I will have to drop the tranny a few inches to get it installed. i will take pics and add commentary. Be back soon! http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/shifters/sk2xc.htm
  16. Welp I get to put a new internal slave in my ax-15 soon as I can tell mine is slowly dying, I've replaced the master and hydraulic line already and bled the system multiple times but the pedal still occasionally goes straight to the floor and brake fluid leaks out of my bellhousing slowly but surely.... but the question is which brand would you guys recommend as I've read that some only lasted a short period of time before going ka-put
