OK, so what exactly is the problem you are having? Not shifting properly can both be issues with the shifter, and with worn syncros in the SR4. Both are very common.

For the trans, it used soft...

We don't inspect old cars, but I was...

I've never removed the engine mount.

The trick I've used is to take my smallest 5/16 wrench, then grind it down to be as small as possible. There is just barely enough room, but it does work....

For what its worth, it is not a Meyer/Orville. I've seen lots of meyers, they were the top used when you ordered a hardtop from the dealer. I have one myself.

That is a later "Kelley" hardtop,...

This is my CJ-5 with 33x12.50, aluminium rims.

Some rubbing when off road, but I'll gladly take that over scary highway driving. ...
