Tranny Mount Torque Bolt

'76 CJ5 304/T150/D20. Swapping T150s and have new poly urethane tranny mount and torque bolt bushings. The Torque bolt; Is only one required and does it go on the passenger side? I asked around and someone said that only one is required because engine torques to the right under power. No manuals explain about these. I bought two of them just in case.

Thanks.

Re: Tranny Mount Torque Bolt

When I removed the mount, there was just one on the passenger side. Kinda half ass installed. So it goes on the driver's side?

Re: Tranny Mount Torque Bolt

Patrick,
I just replaced my smashed/twisted and torn up transfer case mount last week and yes the torque bolt was on the drivers side. I have the same setup as you 76 CJ5 304 T-150 D20. Hope this helps.

Re: Tranny Mount Torque Bolt

Still confused? Well, don't be, the device goes on the drivers side...

JP magazine has a good article on replacement CJ/YJ transmission mounts in the January 2001 issue... as usuall, if anyone wants a scanned copy of the article, email me.

Safe Jeepin'

Re: Tranny Mount Torque Bolt

Has anybody eliminated this torque bolt/bushing? With my new body installed, the D300 shifter rubs the floor pan. But this only occurs under hard excelleration situations. It seems like Jeep is the only one that uses this type of torque bolt. All the other manufacturers just use a simple tranny mount. Can I just cut the "play" out of my torque bushing? Mounting the tranny solid. It seems to have a lot of wiggle while it's runing down the road. This just seemed like a simple fix. I can heat/bend the handle to stop the rubbing. But I thought it would be better if I could eliminate the vibration/wiggle.

Comments?

Drew-
Going to hard metal contact may not be such a good idea but I think you should be able to get away with just a short cross section of a polly (or rubber) doughnut. There shouldn't be any play or clunking as you accelerate/decelerate.
All you need is a firm mount with a little cushion.
Heating and bending the shifter shouldn't be that hard.
All you need is a big vise, a torch and a BFHammer.
