Torque Arm Bushing Gap

I tore a transmission mount wheeling the other weekend. I was getting a ton of clunking on starting in 1st gear. With the usual MeanMax writeup and a little CubeWiz write up plus some searching I got the parts swapped out.

At first I wasn't getting any clunking anymore without trying REALLY hard. I noticed a new clunk up front and turns on one of my motor mounts seems pretty shot in the rubber dept. I've got new ones on the way. The clunking got worse today. I wanted to make sure my torque arm as the right amount of play in it. It seems excess, but does match the CJ pic threads I saw in the search.

What do you guys think?

That dosen't look right to me. BTW I found that with the Brown Dog motor mounts I do not need the torque arm at all. I just have a tranny mount and the Brown Dog motor mounts and everything is happy.

I am missing the push nut I've seen on some diagrams, but other than that all the parts are there. The push nut was not there. I figured it only made life easier by keeping the washer in place before replacing skid plate. Fortunately the nut worked and my rusty skid plate had enough room to pass the nut through so I could remove it and put the lowest washer and nut back on.

I ordered the Brown Dog motor mounts so hopefully this will just go away, but I agree it doesn't look right.

any suggestions?

anyone think it looks ok?

My engine mounts masked the problem, but I still think this doesn't line up

Mine looks the same. I don't know if that's
a good or bad thing.

I order poly urethane engine mounts from summit racing no problems with a clunking without the torque control arm.
