Can the cable TO brg fork be used in this later hydra clutch trans?
Has anyone here done the ej R&P swap to a EA d/r trans using the late 99 up 8 bolt bell housing 5 mt trans?
Replacing the d/r 3.90 R&P with a 4.11 R&P from a 99 Lego OB & adding the viscous center diff for AWD.
Here are links to similar threads about this;
Hate to bum you out......but I think you will not be able to keep the D/R.
The gearset from the EA lower shaft will not fit on the EJ lower shaft. And using mixing hte EA and EJ gearsets won't work .2nd-5th are different ratios. And there is actually a change in the cut of the teeth too.
I built almost the excact trans you are describing.......it grumbled but worked.....for about 1000 miles.....then 2nd gear ate itself.
If you foudn a way around that issue..........fitting the 4.11 with D/R would still require shaving the corner of the ring gear (3.9 rings come like that, 4.11's not) and shaving of the D/R Shift collar itself about .100"
sorry......In theory you could do this build if you could find an RX box to use the upper gearshaft from...as this trans has matching 2nd-5th ratios w/EJ.
You can easily swap the entire EJ gearset and AWD into a S/R (pushbutton) EA trans case......but nt sure why you'd want to?? Maybe 4.11 AWD behind an EA81????
Or you can put EA S/R guts either P/T or FT4wd w/difflock into EJ case for no adapter EJ swap.
