As far as engine placement, the MORE mounts will move the engine slightly.
On my 76 CJ5 I could not get the OEM skidplate to work. And trust me, I tried every possible way. Decided to go with the TDK skid/crossmember combo. I ordered it without the holes drilled for the trans or stabilizer mount.
Thanks Hack, your linkage looks good. The Starfire is my father's. He's had it since 1980. It was last on the road in 1984 and just put back on this year. We rebuilt the engine, trans, suspension and interior. Instrument cluster has all new bulbs. Next is body & paint.
Nice. What is the time frame on getting this thing running?
Thanks guys..that's a good question. I want to get the engine/trans in next weekend. Since I don't have much space or a garage to work in, it probably won't actually be running for a little while. I have another tub that I want to put on the Jeep too, so once I get the body wiring swapped, then I will work on the engine wiring. I do want to get the exhaust in and fuel lines hooked up if possible before the winter.
