AX 5 Transmission applications

I have a 94 Wrangler with a broken AX 5 manual transmission. I am told it will only interchange 94 and 95 models. I have located a 1991 transmission. Can anyone tell me why it can't be adapted to my vehicle ? Does it have to do with the bell housing mount or the transfer case ? I would think internally they would have the same components. Who would be a source of techmical info on this subject ? Thanks jr

There are a couple of things, older ones had internal slave cylinders, to convert to the external type you need an external bell housing. Spline count might come into play, we had a 94 or 95 and that had an external slave. I also don't know if the internal and external use the same clutch. We did have to replace the slave and tranny on it but we got a used tranny from a local guy who had one for sale.
I also believe you can use an NV3500 or 3550 IIRC, thats the tranny that replaced the AX5 and AX15.

OK, just talked to my son who had the YJ, it was a 93YJ and had an external slave and NP231. He replaced the tranny, AX5, with a tranny from an 89 and it went right in, no issues with the 231 bolting up and no issues with the spline count. Hope that helps.

Richp; I hope your right. The one for sale is out of a 1991. I'm going to take my trans along and check for visual differences. If the price is right I will hang the 5 speed back in place. Thanks for the response.
