I pulled my 258 out of my 87 YJ. The tranny now rocks freely from side to side!! The mount is fine, but I bought new insulators for it. Is it supposed to be this loose?

yes your tranny is supposed to have play in it.. compensates for the engine torque.. if you tighten it down so it doesnt move.. you will be breaking something expensive.. there should be a torque mount on the drivers side somewhere .. check that.. should have like an inch of play or so in it.. as long as its not broke off.. or the nuts are gone.
