1980 CJ7 258 Engine Brackets

OK, So I have searched for engine mount brackets for my 1980 CJ7 with a 258 and the ONLY thing I find are V8 upper brackets. some sites list them as the same but they are not, trust me I learned from ordering them. Anyone know where I can find NEW upper engine mount brackets?

Before anyone asks, my original ones were misplaced. Most likely in the big green bin that gets mysteriously emptied every Thursday!

My first ever Resto project.

Any CJ model with 258 from 1974 and up would use the same brackets for motor mount brackets that bolt to the block.
They are different numbers between left and right sides
for giggles, here are the Jeep numbers:
J3198023 right bracket (passenger)
J3180556 left bracket (driver)
New are probably NLA, so junkyard or other donor motor probably your best bet
