Repairing a body mount trouble centering?

Well, I was installing new urethane body mount bushings and the mount behind the pass seat crumbled into pieces.

I think I will just MIG in a new piece of steel but there is nothing left to determine where the center is? Does anyone know how far the center is from the frame? I also was wondering what the diameter of the mount hole is? One other question does anyone know where to get new mounting hardware washers etc.... 1982 CJ7 widetrack.

Mine were the same way. Use the other side's mount for a template, drill the hole and weld in some c-channel. The mount hole is 1 1/4". You can buy new mounting hardware at - SURPRISE! the hardware store! I used a 3/8"x4 1/2" Grade 5 bolt with 3/8" fender washers. Works like a charm.

What about the mount in front of that? Should be the same measurement, if memory serves me.
