Re: CJ trans torque mount failure what happened?
That bolt looks a little whimpy to me but then again, it looks like it didn't snap. The bolt on my T-18 is 1/2" diameter. I used donut-shaped rubber engine mounts above and beneath the bolt head, 3 fender washers and a nylon lock washer. Overkill? Maybe but it has held up. I would also check both the motor mounts and the transmission mount. If these fail, it will put a heck of a lot more lateral load on the torque mount.
