cj7 trans mount and torque arm

Ok so a buddy of mine has got a 85 CJ7 4.2 t4 trans. The trans mount can not be found locally. And as far as the torque arm... What bushings are you using? Or is it a possibility to remove the torque arm??

Thanks!!!

The torque arm bushing is usually available at the same places you find the trans mount bushing at. Do not remove the torque arm! It definitely serves a purpose.

You can do better on the price for the trans mount. I think I paid $5.00 for mine (little less). Take it to a real part store...one that understands how to use a book not just the computers and have them find the correct mount. I can find you my part number tomorrow if you need it.
And yes you need the arm.

No 14, bracket. It is above the gearbox crossmember so you need to get low and dirty to find it.

It is actually just an arm on the mount that you can get a bit more leverage on and it is mounted on some rubber bushings. It allows the gearbox / engine configuration to tilt sideways a bit, otherwise the gear shift would go all over the place.

No 3 and 17 are the nitrile rubber mounts which allow movement and insulate the frame to an extent, but it is the arm and its bushings that limit the movement.

If you have a CJ with a flapping about gear stick it is probably this gearbox mount and/or torque arm that is missing or perished.

OHH When I heard torque arm I thought suspension and then I had a picture of a big suspension piece somewhere on the transmission going to a frame rail or some crazy thing.

Thanks

Agreed 100%. Those were the first two I found to use as an example. You can get OEM rubber that'll last you another 20-30yrs, or the poly which will last longer than your jeep.

I see Morris4x4 has them for $11. They also have the bushings for the arm but I clicked off before I saw the price. Same one I have except I paid half that much.

I replaced my motor mounts with Bombproof mounts from MORE. Then got rid of the torque arm completely and bolted the transmission mount to the skid plate (like it is on almost every other vehicle made).. I have wheeled the heck out of it and had no problems. It is quiet (no thunking) and the LOKAR shifter doesn't move an inch even in the most extreme angles. I lost a stock motor mount on a trip once going up Signal Pk. I tried to return as easily as I could, however the other mount gave going down the mountain and all hell broke loose. The torque arm bent like a popsicle stick and sent my 258 right through my radiator. After a heck of a time getting the CJ off the trail and home, I modified the skidplate to accept a poly trans mount, installed the BP motormounts and went back to Signal pk. Have been up it 10 times since then with no issue.

You can build your own torque are real easy. Just get a 2 inch wide C channel, or 3/16 steel. Get a trans mount bushing like what I have on the right, and on the left, I have a shackle bushing above and below the arm with a 1/2 inch bolt through the center. Don't go exactly by my pic, because I had the trans mount too far to the right. The left bolt hole on the mount goes to the center hole on the trans.
