Transmission Bell Housing

Will the bell housing from the tranny on my 90 wrangler work for an AX-15?

It would help to know what motor and transmission you have now.

That combination wouldn't mate together. You don't have a AX5

Assuming you have a 4.2l, then, yes, an AX15 would mate to it

A 90 Yj with a 4.2L has a Puegot BA10/5spd behind it. You can tell this from looking under it. the BA10 has a seam running along the bottom of its length, with bolts holding it together.

An AX15 has a flat bottom, with a drain plug, all aluminum. AN AX5 has a flat bottom but the piece that bolts to the t-case is cast iron and probably rusty. That's the easiest way to tell the differences in the trans.

The bell housing for a BA10 will accept the AX15 as long as you keep the internal throwout bearing, but does the AX15 Have the cone on the front of it for an internal throwout? Plus, if its a newer AX15 the nose of the shaft is .75" in diameter and the BA10 has a nose diameter of .565" I think, just over half inch. So a new pilot shaft bearing is needed, in the back of the crank.
