well,sorta

the th400 used behind amc v8s was made for amc and had a different bolt pattern than that used by the 6.2 and the small/bigblock chebby. in order to run a QT behind a 6.2/6.5(or a cehvy gas engine,for that matter) youll need find a chevy pattern th400 and swap the QT tailshaft and adapter into it [img]smile.gif[/img]

What about the input shaft on a t18? Need lengthened after the 1/4 inch adapter plate? What about the whole clutch setup mechanical or hydraulic?
I have a 1987 6.2 hopefully going into a 78 cherokee. Which bell housing should I look for? clutch fork, release bearing, pilot bushing, etc?
Do I use the GM radiator or is it way too big? What is this oil cooler?and how do I retrofit it to the chero?
I hope you guys are still out there.
Thanks in advance
Joe

disregard my post. It seems that the 6.2 may not be repairable.
thanks

Id like to see an anwer to his post. Im in the planning stages to put a 6.2 in my J-20. I am also wondering about the extra 1/4 inch that the spacer will add.

most i hav eseen use an 'odd' pilot bearing (longer by the thickness of the spacer). and then they just let the clutch disc ride on a slightly different part of the splines.

peace
