Need a little help on a 83 CJ7

Well I have been learning allot off this site and started a rebuild on a 83 CJ7. I took it down to the frame and had it redone and am trying to put it back together. I took hundreds of pics as I tore it apart but the memory card wont work so I am in a jam. Its just my memory and a Haynes manual, so I am in a bind here.

The motor mounts that attach to the frame are two sizes (pics below) I am trying to figure out what side the little one goes on and what holes it goes into. There are 6 holes there and it could bolt to the front 2 or the rear 2.

Also there is a couple of pictures of what I thought was a steering box bracket but all the pics I find online are different. Can anyone tell me where they go.

Lastly I bought some Dana 44 wide tracks out of a old scout had them redone and want to put disk brakes on there. Found lots of write up on the AMC 20 but not on the 44 does anyone have any experience with that?

Thanks for any help and your time.

Mike

Hello,

The small mount goes on the driver side and the big one on the pass side. In my 5 there are only 4 holes on the frame so not sure which you should use.

Not sure about the bracket.

From what I've read, the D44 disk brake upgrade uses the same parts (96-01 maxima or 300zx rear calipers, hangers and rubber lines and thin tracker brake rotors). The only change is the custom bracket that mounts the caliper to the flange

The bigger one with the dimple on top is the pass. side.
The other piece is your sway bar mount that goes on the frame.

The holes you chose are determined what type of engine, trans combo you have. 1983 factory choice on engines was either 258 six or 150 four cylinder. Trans would be T4, T5, T176 and Automatic.

Here's pic of my CJ's mounting location based on 258 engine and T5 trans.
