4.0 cylinderhead conversion PS bracket

I made the switch to the 4.0 cylinderhead on my 4.2 block and haven't had any luck fabricating a bracket that will allow belt adjustments. I'm not a fabricator by any means so if anyone has a good solution please let me know. I'm willing to pay for a proven bracket.


1981 CJ5 ground up restro in progress, finished product will have: 4.2 w/ a 4.0 head conversion, headers, Howell TBI, HEI, D300, AMC 20, D30, 3" lift w/ 33x12.50 BFG. All new hardware, all diffs rebuilt.

I followed Fatman's example and mocked it up with cardboard until I got what I needed.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

If you have or can obtain the stock bracketry, you can just cut the top portion of the large bracket off. I had to trim a little more for the header, but haven't had any issues since I completed it.




If you don't have time to do it right, how will you ever find time to do it again?

Dave,

Can you scan a trace of the front bracket and send it to me; I think I may have the back bracket figured out.
