258 motor mount brackets

Does anyone know what the torque specifications are for the bolts that hold the motor mount brackets to the engine? I also need the torque specifications for the bolts that hold the brackets to the frame. This is for the AMC 258. Thanks

When I did mine, I simply tightened them down. I've been running almost 2 years...no issues.
I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?

As a friend of mine used to put it "stop 1/4 turn before she strips". I have an OEM service manual at home but I don't know if it will list that spec. I just tightened them down and haven't had any issues. It's a good practice for CJ owners to go around and check/tighten everything once a year or so. Kind of like the old Harley's of the seventies.
