Some may recall my saga, I have a 1991 YJ. I have a bolt that holds the trans mounting bracket sheared off flush. I broke a screw extractor in that so i can't drill it out. The other bolt hole is damaged but holding.

Today I pt it back together, planning on getting some help. It should hold together so I can take it somewhere. I have a Jeep Specialist in the Sacramento. They have been working on Jeeps for 25 years. I am hoping they have a fix. They also run a Jeep wrecking yard. Worst case I am thinking they could remove this section and replace with a used on.

Assuming that doesn't work, would it be possible for me to attach a new mounting bracket by installing one good bolt and having someone weld the bracket in place OR weld a stud on the sheared off bolt. I am trying to avoid tearing the whole tail end of the trans out. That's a bit above my skill level.

I knew this Jeep had a questionable past and would need a lot of work but it seems every repair goes this way.

Have them fix it if they have been doing Jeeps that long they seen this before. I am sure they have a solution.

This Jeeps been tough, I bought it cheap knowing it was leaking a ton of oil and had sketchy history. Tried to do the seal but couldn't get the old seal out. I ended up taking to a mechanic. When I got it back, I noticed this problem. Took it for a drive today and noticed the temp gauge was not working. It's like it's gaining on me. On the good side it runs great and the auto trans is very smooth. I knew being old, restoring it would be rough. It would be nice if at least one repair would go smooth.

Temp gauge sending unit left side rear on the head single purple wire. Ground the wire the gauge should peg full. If so sending unit just a couple of bucks some teflon thread tape and your good.
