transmission mount

Here's one. I recently changed out my tranny mount in my 93 yj 4.0 automatic. The mount was beat after many years of hard driving, I'm assuming. I picked up my Jeep almost a year back. When I dropped the center plate, the tranny mount fell right off. There were no bolts attatching the mount to the tranny. The only bolts were the mount being attatched to the center skid plate. When I put the replacement mount in, and went to mount it to the tranny, I noticed that it was extrememly hard to fit any type of bolts into the mounting holes. Now I did not have the Jeep lifted off the ground, just had it on some jack stands. I was able to get two bolts into those mounting holes, but it was quite the task. I put some Locktite on the bolts, just to make sure they would not work thier way out. So my question is, are there bolts that hole the tranny mount to the tranny, or does the tranny just rest on the mount itself? It seems that it would make sense that it (the mount) would be sucured to the tranny, and the holes in the tranny were threaded. So I would assume that they do take mounting bolts. Though it was a bastard to get those bolts in there and then to torque them down.

unfortantly for you there are about two bolts that hold the mount assembly to the trans.there should be a metal peice that goes right above the transmission mount you just replaced.

Your absolutely correct. That piece is what I was reffering to. The bolts were almost impossible to get to. Like I said, I put some Loc-tite on to give the bolts a little more holding power. I figured the original bolts worked themselves out. They were not in the bottom of the skid plate, so I wasn't sure if there were bolts that held the mount to the tranny. I thought it may just have rested on the mount. Didn't make much sense to me that it would be designed that way. Appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

I recently replaced my trans mount and found a way that should make the job easier for you. I placed a floor jack with a block of wood under the oil pan and jack stand at the rear diff of the Jeep. This will allow you to completely remove your skid plate and give you a ton of space to install the other two screws without having to worry about the trans moving or shifting. Then simply re-install the skid plate and go drive. Good luck.
