M.O.R.E sent me their mounts today. They are sweet. Thanks to Jim, Calvin and Hack for convincing me to get them

Not yet..I need to degrease, prep and paint the frame about half way back. Also I need to wait until the trans and transfer case come back from the rebuilder. Once that's done, it will be time to get it in as one assembly..hopefully in a couple weeks

Unless you want to spend several hundred more bucks, move the motor back to the tranny, instead of using the stock motor mount location, then having to get both driveshafts professionally altered.
Ask me how I know.....

The MORE mounts locate the engine to just clear the firewall, from what I understand, so moving it back farther isn't really possible without cutting the firewall.

Yea Im hoping the mounts will place this engine right where it needs to be and the trans/xfer case get put in the right spot. Finished up this cradle for the engine so I can work on getting the flywheel, clutch and PP in.



Also painted the mounts

You gonna go hydraulic clutch stuff? I stayed mechanical, and there is( or wasn't) anything to bolt the motor end of the bellcrank to. Novak had one for an SBC swap, but not this.

Yea I'm staying mechanical. I'll have to figure that out with the clutch linkage once the engine and trans are in. I know a few guys on here have gotten creative with it and had great results.

Yeah, there was only one hole to connect the engine side pivot to so I simply used a piece of 3/16" bar stock to give it another mounting point. Simple setup that is rock solid.

Mike I think Im going to steal your idea. Do you remember how long your 7/16-14 bellhouse bolts are? I think the stock ones should be 2.5" long? thx

I put the TO bearing and clutch fork on the Ford bellhousing. Still need a new rubber boot. Anyone interested in a T176-to-Jeep Bellhousing?

Rob the stand looks great. There's just something about Ford Blue too. Hey where did you get your clutch fork? I need one just like that from what I can tell.

Thanks Jim, I figured paint it blue b/c it will probably only hold Ford Engines. The fork is from a '70 Bronco, same with the bellhouse and TO bearing.

Today I pulled out the old steering box after we went to a huge swap meet. Got some Jeep goodies and these old CJ5 Golden Eagle ads in frames for $15..love this Jeep.
