M.O.R.E. Bombproof motor mount

I installed these for the 360 I am installing in my CJ7.
For anyone that has done this I have a question. Did you use all 6 factory mounting holes to the frame? I have my tub off and it seems awful far back. I'm afraid I'm going to be into my firewall. Also did you need any body lift to clear the tranny and TC? If so how much?

While we are in the vicinity, I have the rear dump exhaust manifolds. Is this going to be an issue for my clutch linkage? Seems like I've read some have had to go to center dumps from a 304.

I used 5 bolts on each side. It cleared with out a body lift, but was close. I have since added a 1" Daystar body lift, but not because of the engine or trans clearance.

I think you will have to get a center dump manifold for the left side.

Never had any problems with mine being close to the tub. Make sure that you don't have the sides swapped. It's easy to do.

Look through the holes in the frame and you'll notice that not all of them have a tubular sleeve in them. Use the ones that are sleeved (there are four IIRC).

According to how I read the directions, I mounted the one with the dogleg on the drivers side. Is this correct?
