    Hey guys, I'm swapping in a 225 and t18/dana 18 into my cj5. The t18 is a jeep case with a ford input shaft. I just had the thought that because of the ford input shaft, the standard dauntless clutch might not fit. Is this an issue?

    Which clutch do I need for a jeep 225 to T18? I'll be using the standard flywheel.

    Thanks guys! My 225 is in the machine shop and almost done. My dana 18 and t18 are freshly rebuilt. Everything is getting close to going back in the jeep, I'm so excited!

    Pretty sure Ford is 1 1/16” and GM is 1 1/8”. Jeep depends on what it came out of. There are at least 12 different T-18 input shafts...
    common to use a Ford disc with GM Pressure plate and flywheel. Don’t forget the custom pilot bushing to match the larger pilot of the Ford input shaft. Should be readily available from Summit, Jeg’s, Partsmike, etc.
