rubber mount bushings

I need some help installing my rubber body mounts. I have a 78 cj7 and I bought the rubber bushing kit from crown. I can't figure out the two front frame mounts. they are a smaller hole. Any pics would be helpful. I ran the search and could'nt find any info. Plus where do the larger donuts go.

Before you install the body bushings, you must cut down the metal sleeves to size. About 1-3/8" total length or 1-1/4" length form sleeve washer to end of tube. You do not want the metal sleeve to protrude below the bottom rubber isolator or the body mounts will not compress correctly. Without cutting the tubes to length, the body won't be fastened tight enough against the frame and you run the risk of the tub shifting around a bit. All body mounts, #2-#7 get torqued to 24 ft/lbs and #5a and the front grill get torqued to 36 ft/lbs. #5a is the mount that is located above the gas tank and is bolted to a bracket off of body mount #5.

I believe the hole you are referring to is the one that was used in the welding jig when the frames are built. Those holes that are smaller and either round or hex shaped were used to align the brackets as they were welded to the frame.

The actual hole for the body bushings should be about 1-1/4" I.D. and that smaller hole for the jig is about 9/16".

I was under the impression that the fat rubber isolator goes on the #5 mount by the fuel tank. That is where the hardest up and down effect happens, especially if you have a load on.

I'm talking about the actual hole for the rubber bodymount is smaller in position 2 than all the others. Maybe because it's a 1978 frame? I'm confused. where did you get your grill mount bushing? They do not come with the crown kit?

There is a special kit for the 76-79 CJ's, it isn't the same as for the 80-86's. Did you get the correct kit?

Not trying to hijack, But what is the difference between the two? My jeep is a little mixed up and want to get the correct kit.
Thanks,
Jeff

Just to take a wild guess, #2 mount is a different size for one thing...

When I tore down my 84' CJ I marked each original body bushing per location and the #2 had the larger isolator on that bracket. The #2 body bracket is really the only one that has room to fit the larger isolator anyway. You also need to get a larger flat washer for that one too. All washers are 2"O.D. x 3/8" I.D. and the two for the larger isolator are 2.5"O.D. x 3/8" I.D.

The fat rubber and large washer fit just fine in front of the tank on mine, just put them on recently.

Mike - while it may have fit fine, if you look at the parts manual diagram you will see that Keith is correct that they are for the #2 mount.

Part #13 for the #2 spot and #14 for the rest.


Currently in pieces - all of them
