Re: Can you convert a pre 97 xj to an automatic belt tensioner?

Motor mounts are different 97+ I've got a friend who tried to put my spare (93) motor in his 99 grand and it wouldn't bolt it not a simple deal for him.

Maybe that helped.

It's because your bracket is more or less like the early Renix, with two bolts in slotted holes behind, a pivot bolt on top, a lock nut on the bottom, and an adjusting bolt on the side. I'll look at mine tomorrow and assess the simplicity of swapping, as I have both yours and a 96 like the others describe.

It bolts to the water pump and the block, and adds an idler. Probably have to change the manifold.
