T150 mount issues

Having an issue with my T150 trans mount. Bought the cheap one from morris4x4 but not sure its the right one (even though it says otherwise). Seems to "match" the original one but the old one is so tattered and covered in oil I cant tell. Before I spring on the $45 poly mount with 3 studs - what do you guys think? wrong mount? Ive tried all different combos of mounting plate to tranny and mount to skid plate, wont line up.

Are you using the same torque arm as before (when it fit)? If that is a later CJ one, that could do it.

You have it bolted to the tranny incorrectly....
I'm also thinking your tranny mount is to long and you won't be able to match up the holes correctly.

This is on a T-177 but the T-150 mounts the same way.



You can see the nut and bolt on the left.

the bolts labeled 18.200-2 go into the tranny.


Here are some great pictures:



This seems to be the same mount you have but it's to long and it's pushing the tranny over too far to the driver side.



These are the correct length mounts and yo can see how much shorter it is.
it fit's perfectly.







That's not the first time I've seen the cross carved up.

Here is the one from the same pictures above.




in Fact, it looks like the same crossmember as your. Where did you buy your jeep???




I think there should only be 3 holes in the crossmember. Something like this But I'll have to check...:

Thanks so much for pulling all of those photos together for me. Spent a little time on it today and have it mounted to the transmission per the pictures. My mount didnt come with studs though so may have to revisit that but hopefully things will line up on the skid plate.

My CJ had a long rough life - I think a lot of parts were damaged on the trail and replaced. (Dana 20 cover dented, oil pan dented, frame DENTED!) I think this skid plate came from a donor CJ with a different transmission.

You can just buy some studs. Saves the problem of getting too long of bolt and having it bottom out before it actually tightens the mount down or possibly push the new mount apart.

They are probably $0.50 each at a hardware store or NAPA.
