Has anyone done this or seen this? I was told my a local mechanic that I could purchase a Ford T18 with granny low and simply put the inner parts into a Jeep T18 case.

I would suggest you delete this post and try a search first. I'm trying to save you from the mod squad, but it may be too late. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

BTW, there was a post on 10/11 that should answer your Q

Guess you don't quite read right or I wasn't clear. One or the other. BTW, I have searched and searched. I make sure to do my research cause I am NOT an expert.
I'm asking if the Ford T18 inner workings came be removed and simply placed in a Jeep T18 case, leaving the Jeep input and output shaft (this avoids using any AA or Novak adapter kits). I was told my a local tranny mechanic that he has done it several times for people. I haven't seen any postings on this specific mod.

Yes you can. In order to get the granny low the entire first gear cluster (including input shaft) from the Ford would have to go into the Jeep case.

Yup, you sure can. But the only thing you will keep from your jeep t18 is the mainshaft. All the gears including the input shaft will have to be swaped out. I think fords use a 6 1/2" long input shaft, so you may or may not need that. My jeep needed one that was 8-8 1/2" or so. I found one out of a j truck that was the same length but the right gear ratio. You might just want to find a j-10 or j-20 with a granny t18 and swap the whole thing in at that rate.
