Re: I think its time to replace motor mounts.

You will know just how bad it is when your radiator forces you to replace it.

DAMHIKT.

Re: I think its time to replace motor mounts.

Then this is just a preventative maintenance job and not a repair job.

IOW, you are ahead of the game. Good job.

I think the bolt going through the bushing may need a little tightening.

That's for added flex.

Ha, I need some added flex to get the pass side mount on. The mount will not sit parallel to the bracket for the bushing to slide in. I tried moving the motor up and down but no luck yet.

After moving the engine around for a couple hours I finally got the mount on. Not excited about having to remove the oil filter and move the bracket to get the thru bolt off and on. Gonna soak in some suds to relieve pain now..

Suds can be necessary for most jeep parts to fit.

Yes. But too many will make the Jeep fall over.

Re: I think its time to replace motor mounts.

I couldn't keep a motor mount in my '68 Plymouth for the longest time. I'd replace it and inside of a week it'd pop again. Turned out I had a busted tranny mount, too, so the torque just overcame the one motor mount. However, point is, my answer was half-inch chain and a thru-bolt.

Worked like a charm. Was on there until the engine eventually breathed its last, near the 15/10 interchange.
