well the good news was no one was hurt and minor damage.......
the 88 jeep wrangler has been better though
although the push bar i had kept the body damage to zero
evidenlty wranglers love to shake bolts lose
LIKE THE ENGINE MOUNTS (Please check them, readers. All of them)
main problem: engine is sitting 2-3 inchs too far forward
solution: replace broken mounts on engine and tranny
i've jacked up the engine.....dropped the skid plate and taken off the tranny mount
(waiting for the replacement)
now to the engine
i cant get the bolts out to replace the bracket that joins the engine piece to the frame piece (shaped like a "U")
they seem to be an odd size between 5/8 and 9/16 (does anyone know the size for the the factory bolts)
also the bolt that goes throught the bracket/bushing and supports the engine seems to be an old size (between 3/4 and 11/16)
does anyone know the sizes!!!!!!!!
also any suggestions
