Hi Phil - sorry my friend I do not. I wish you luck with your find. Cheers, Trav

The factory 304 V8 was backed exclusively by a T15 three-speed in 1976.
If you have any other tranny, it was swapped-in.
It's a 5 speed. Haven't crawled under to see if I can find anything but I've gone through it and unless there are some phantom gears, I'm rockin' a 5 speed. Lynn - always appreciate your jeep knowledge in this and other threads - always good stuff to know.
Nothing big on the update front: replaced the solenoid and ripped out the back seat. Have also discovered that the 'blue' paint job wasn't put on properly (not sanded) over the original sky blue color - stuff just keeps flaking off. Oh well, it ain't a bute.
Will get there with this one - long term project. Need the carb cleaned (motorcraft) and need to drain the tank and fix the fuel line. With any luck, I'll be able to at least drive it around the yard.
Pictures soon. Nothing to write home about. Thanks for reading.
