The OM617 to AX15 Adapter Kit will mate your OM617 donor motor to any AX15 manual transmission. The kit includes:

-Aluminum Adapter Plate

-Starter galvanneal spacer

-New flywheel

-Crankshaft adapter

-All necessary hardware


You supply a Ø1" OD pilot bearing from an early 1990's Jeep 4.0L (ex. Timken SCE1295).


The flywheel is machined with a custom bolt pattern and is ready to be bolted on. It is highly recommended that you mark the posiiton of your OM617 flexplate in relation to your crankshaft before removing. This new flywheel comes neutral balanced, and you may not have any issues running it as-is, but your safest bet is to have it "match balanced" to the OM617 flexplate.

Custom ARP bolts are uitilized for the crankshaft spacer and flywheel.

If you are running an older 15mm input shaft model, a sleeve will be included to adapt your input shaft up to 3/4". The sleeve is a high-tolerance shrink fit and will not come off without a puller.
