transmission torque bushings

just how do these go? i thought there was all kinds of wobble in the stud because the bushings were shot. i got my new bushings today and they will be the same way. maybe i am trying to stick the tranny torque stud back on wrong or something, i dunno. the stud goes through the big hole, one bushing on bottom and one on top with the nut on top tigthening as far as the smaller holed washer will let it, and the lower stud going through the hole in the skid plate?

i gonna feel stupid if that isnt right, if it is then i dont get it. i will have a 1/16" of an inch between the bushings themselves and about 3/4" between the flanged part on them. they dont clamp down on or hold anything.

anyone understand what im trying to ask? anyone have a pic or something?

Your not losing your mind. Ever one i have ever seen is loose. Not sure why, even the factory one that was on mine was loose. The fix is add a few shims to tighten it up. I think i used two 1/2 washers on top of the skid plate to tighten it up. I may have used others at different spots, but i dont think i did.

Both previous posts are correct. I just
replaced the transmission mount and
the torque arm bushing in my 85 CJ7 and
had to add several washers to shim it
correctly. It should be snug and
not be loose in either direction. If it's
not, it will cause the clutch to "skip", at
least that's what it feels like, when you
start from a stop. This seem to be
a common problem and why they don't
make the poly bushings so where you
don't have to shim them is anyone's
guess.

Hope this helps. If you want, I have
a picture of the shimmed bushing that
I can email to you. If I could figure out
how to post a picture here I would, but
I don't, so shoot me an email if you're
interested.

Mike

I am just to do this on my 5, so I am sure it is similar. I would love an email with a pic, thanks.

Thanks,

I was working on my t-case this winter and snapped my tranny stud when removing the skid plate. I replaced with a grade 8 bolt and the remnant bushing from an old set of shocks (Sunday evening fix so I could drive home from my friends). I snugged everything down tight and seemed to function well. However, I noticed one monster of a squeek when sitting at a stop and idle. When I loosened the temp stud up to allow a little room, squeek went away. The slop could be to cut down on squeeks and other noises...
