I need the distance measured from the block to bellhousing mating surface to the flywheel clutch surface on a 4.0L Jeep engine with an AX-15 or NV3550 trans/flywheel in it.

If anyone has it that would be great. I have posted on about every forum I can think of with nothing back yet.

I got this from a guy online. I am going with it and if needed I will make adjustments. For me and all those who want to know

The overall thickness of the adapter is 1-9/16 with a cutout for the starter. The thickness at the cutout is 5/16. The flywheel spacer appears to be ~1-3/8 thick. I couldn't really get into the bellhousing to get a good measurement. When I pull it all back out I'll check with ya and see if you still need the measurement. I'm not sure when that will be as I'm waiting on some parts again.

With the gas to diesel conversions you guys are doing I have a question. What do you do with the fuel pump that is in the tank? It looks to be part of the sending unit. Also, how do you route the return? I have 0 experience with newer jeeps and want some info on the best way to do it. LMK

you should be able to either fit a regulator, and turn the pressure down, or remove the pump, and fab up a new pickup tube to go in its place..

use the gasser fuel return line as your return line from the pump..

Cool, that is what I will try. Using a regulator and turning it down maybe just what I want. Constant pressure feed @ 7 psi or so should do the TDI just fine.

FWIW, you might want to use a regulator with a return built into it as well.. idk if the fuel pump will like being chiked down to 7 psi..

Thinking on this more, what about the gas cap? some are vented some are not. What do I do about that?

Diesels generally are always vented - diesel doesn't evaporate like gas does.

This site just tells me that the cross members are the same in the ax 5 and Ax 15 and NV3550. If I forget or someone searches this now we know.

crank spacer bolted on and the Jeep flywheel bolted onto it as well. Fit is fine, but my 40mm crank bolts are 2.4mm too long. I have to cut or grind them down so they don't stick through the crank. If I am lucky I will find the exact space for the bell housing tomorrow.

This is the template. I have to drill the second set of holes but it is measured and done.
