the engineering team at Hack Fabrication came up with this for the Mechanical Clutch Mount:


There wasn't enough room to bolt the OEM Jeep part to it so it got welded. They don't wear out as long as the nylon bushings are in place and grease is applied on a regular basis.

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.

Here's a couple more for you

The Starfire is one of my favoite 'big cars'. He's got a great looking cruiser.

I used the MORE mounts too- with an 88 Ford F150 bell, and had to "slide" the tranny forward about 1.5 inches. Just throwin that out there.

Hack- that looks like a fine project car for you......

Thanks Hack...

84MSRB, Project?? The car isn't a project, there aren't many parts on this car that haven't been changed, not much left to do before its show car material.

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.

Nice progress and looking good!

Good call on the 150 amp alternator upgrade. That is on my shortlist.

As far as trimming your header to clear the starter, here is how close mine turned out.

Thanks guys, Mike I got the alt $95 delivered to my door off ebay. Let me know if you want the link. Did you have to trim your flange at all, or its just very close?
