Torque arm hole size and trans moving...

I've looked everywhere and not seen an answer to this. I'm making a new torque arm and need to know the size of the hole in the torque arm where the bushing goes. Someone said they thought maybe 7/8" or 1" but I'd really love to know for sure before drilling. Thanks!

Also, the top of my transmission shifts to the right about 3/4" when I'm on the gas and then returns 3/4" to the left when I let off the gas. I can see this while driving because I've got the sheet metal cover removed right now. I tried it in reverse and the opposite happens--shifts left with gas and right when coasting. I've looked at my motor mounts the best I know how and the look okay. Is this normal?

BTW, I just bought the jeep and I'm trying to work the bugs out. Not sure how long its been this way.

I have mine off right now, I'll get a measurement when I get home from work. That isn't normal, but if your transmission mount is shot it makes sense

I just went out and measured mine and it is 1". I had to make a new one to put the AX-15 in so I made it with the round bushings on both sides, poly on the bottom, rubber on the top. It does not move around much at all, just enough to absorb vibration etc.
