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.
