that should be the A-15 ? from asian ?

its the same as the R 150 front housing, but I beleve the input shaft is much longer, a spacer plate would have to be built to allow the use of the current bellhousing to accept it, but it can be done

so a spacer may do it? I could do that , starter seems may be a issue

no man, Its a direct bolt up, the only difference between the A 15 and R 150, 151, 154 is the input shaft length

they all share the exact same bolt pattern, thats why I included the bolt pattern on the original bellhousing, now all thats required is a spacer, or a new housing could be cast from the original pattern to include the length

yes, it will bolt up but you are responsible to find the throw bearing and clutch disc

its not that easy


there is a lot of attention to detail to design a functional bellhousing to a given transmission/engine combination

pilot bearings, throw out bearings, throw out bearing holders, custom disc's

everything has to work together

If you want to invest your time, I would be glad to help you

I'm pretty sure the gear trains are interchangeable with those transmissions. You can use a Toyota g52 gears on the jeep ax5 main shaft. I know for sure the fifth gears swap I'm pretty sure the gears will fit the main shaft as well. I would assume that the ax15 and R series transmissions are the same way.

yeah, for all the trouble its better just to stay with the Toyota trans, but each to his own, the versitility is built into the housing
