Lif auto than most likely a998. Will bolt up, but driveshaft mods come in. You can use the eagle intermediate housing to save some so you do not have to mod the front driveshaft. However the rear slips into a 242. And than needs ca. 10 inches added to it.

I run a 242

The rear output of the 242 has the shaft slip into it instead of bolting on.

Yes it will bolt up

The eagle has a fixed rear yoke. The drive shaft bolts up to the transfer case. On the 242 the rear shaft slips into the transfer case.

Ok so a 242 will work and a 231? I have an s10 with a 231c in it, I guess the 231 c means Chevrolet? Any chance of that working? Also what's the spline count on that 242? Y'all are helping me a ton!

S10 case won't work. But would be good for someone who wanted to adapt a GM 700r transmission to their AMC engine and not want to spend the extra money adapting the Eagle or a Jeep transfer case since the S10 TC is driver's drop.

My Chilton's says that the 80-81 model transfer case uses 1030 motor oil. I'm thinking that is just for the 119 t-case, and not for the NP129 that I have in my 81. It says to use Dexton II in 1982 and later, which I also assume are all outfitted with NP129s like mine.  Make sense?

AMC later recommended to use Dexron in all the Eagle transfer cases.

"all" as in every year, every model?  Just want to be sure since i'm in the process of doing a clutch and changing all fluids.

Don't mean to change subjects but is Dextron suitable for the t4 as well?  I read conflicting info.  Some say 90w and some say Dextron.

The Eagles all used the 23 spline transfer cases, regardless of the transmission they were used behind.

Can't say for certain, but here's the source:http://www.n0kfb.org/homepage/amc/tech/transfer_case/swap/index.htm

There's a pretty neat chart on that page, which lists the features and characteristics of the New Process transfer cases...
