you don't need to remove the tranny mount nuts, but you do need to loosen them so the mount can slide. remember triangles from geometry class? pushing the assembly up will push the tranny mount back about 1/4". make sure to support the trannny in front of the skid with a bottle jack.Ok thanks guys. One more dumb question: I'm removing the TC drop - can I just remove the 6 skid plate bolts, reemove the drop then install the new 6 skid plate bolts, or do I also need to remove/reinstall the other 4 nuts to the tanny as well?
the YJ i was working on this past weekend also used acorn bolts...I'd just replace them with grade 8's with a washer or two...I know on my '97 the skid plate bolts are acorn style. I don't think regular bolts would work very well because it would be a pain to get everything aligned.
:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:Sheesh, I've been all over town and nobody has 13x1/2, including Home Depot, Auto Zone and a specialty bolt supply. We're talking 13m diameter x 1/2" length, right?
Thread pitch is just as important though, or you will cross thread itBoyd Crowder said:I was kidding. You may have been kiddin too.
In my defense, when you hear 2 bolt dimensions, they're usually diameter and length, not thread pitch.
