AX5 interchange between early and late

Um, why not find a 87-90 231?

Np207 is strong enough but no parts support and the speedometer gearing is odd ball gm reverse direction with no real way to swap it to more jeep standard stuff. I've heard of plenty of guys with early 4cy and 2.8 dealing in a 231 with 21 spline, 87 to 90 I think.

There is something different about the early ax5, while reading and watching videos about how to rebuild them there was mention of how some things are different in the early ax5 and to be sure to buy the right kit. I don't remember the specifics but it made the early ax5 seem slightly stronger.

Btw I wouldn't try to disassemble the transmission in car, watch a video on it too many small parts to lose and I don't think you'll be able to easily swap the part you want to any way.
