Guys, new here posting. I'm in the process of a major rebuild of a '94 YJ. My two teenaged daughters and I are replacing the tub and frame on their "new" jeep (the project has grown from just a rear quarter replacement when we bought it!). We've redone all the suspension and front end parts, cleaned, stripped, and painted the frame and running gear and have a rolling chassis again. Now we tried to re-install the 2.5L (with the 5 speed and transfer case). I believe the replacement frame we got is a 4 cylinder frame. From what I've gathered here the engine mounts would be forward near the shock towers if it were a 6cyl motor. The transmission and driver's side mounts align Ok, but the passenger side mount is 1 inch too far forward. I also think the motor might be shifted a little to the passenger side. The original '94 frame had a bolt on bracket between the frame mount and the rubber motor mount with a single bolt. The replacement frame has 2 bolt holes like the driver's side. Does anyone know if Jeep used diffent brackets on the engine itself in different years that could make up this difference? I could cut the bracket and move an inch, but would prefer to keep the factory welds if possible. I'll try to post pics tomorrow if necessary.
Thanks,
John
