Well, I thought I would contibute to the HAMB by sharing my 5 speed trans swap in my '65 C10 truck. I know everyone is looking for new/cheaper ways to get a 5 speed and after my research, I felt the Jeep AX15 trans was the way to go. They are stronger than a GM T5 and is a mid placed shifter location, unlike a Camaro T5 but not as far forward as a S10 T5. Seemed perfect for my needs. Do NOT confuse this with the AX5 trans, as it's a POS low power trans. Make sure you get an AX15, ideally from '92-'99 from a 4.0L 2WD Jeep Cherokee (get the slip yoke too!) Novak Adapters make a very nice, high quality adapter that allows you to use a stock GM bell housing and clutch assembly. My truck was setup with an 11" clutch pack and is the earlier 10 spline, 1 1/8" input shaft. Bell housing was an orignal truck style cast iron type but this will work with any old 4 bolt style GM bell housing. You do need to drill out the 4 mounting holes in the bell housing so it will bolt to the adapter from the inside, so don't use some rare housing. Luckily my truck iron housing already bolted from the inside on the lower bolts so I only had to drill out the upper ones. Here we go... AX15 with the Jeep bell housing removed. Novak Adapter plate. They also supply an adapter pilot bearing. Get the correct one based on the year of the AX15. You must remove the front cover/throw out sleave to modify it, per instructions You need to cut the stock snout off. I clamped to a piece of angle iron to hold it vertically and a band saw took care of the rest Reseal the cover and this is what you should have now With the adapter and new throw out bearing sleave installed. The adapter puts the input shaft at the same length as a GM input shaft Bell housing bolted on. This bolts in from the front side so the whole assembly had to be put in as one unit Mocking the trans into place Adapter pilot bearing installed, flywheel resurfaced and new RAM clutch installed Don't forget the throw out bearing and arm I had to build my own cross member and had the driveshaft modified. Well, that's about it. Most everything else is like a standard trans install. One thing to note, there are electronic and mechanical speedo drives. They interchange. Mine had an electric one and I put in a mechanical. It matches up to the GM cable. I still need to get the right speedo drive gear to calibrate things but I will do that when I swap in my new gauges. Hope you enjoyed this and find it helpful.
