well, im getting ready to replace my worn out front mount with a solid front mount. the rear mount is already a solid, previous owner was just apparently too lazy to do the front one. what would be the best way to do that? i dont want to take the engine and trans out, i would like to figure out a way to leave everything in while i change it out. is that possable? any tips would be helpfull.... thanks guys.

SHPUZ,
I am new here and by no means an expert but I do have some skilz and have been around for awhile.
If ya got the tools and skills fab one up, I did and before that had never done it before, actually I fabbed up the whole bus box mount with urethane mounts. Its not all that hard just measure everything at least 5 times.
If you have the mount already just jack it up and lay under the carl, look at it till it comes to you on how it can be done.
If you plan on fabing one up yourself just poke around for tranny mounts and you will get plenty of ideas.
hope this helps.

Its going to be tight working, there is no easy way with everything in place. My advice is get the car up on ramps throw your tools under there and start. Put a jack under the front of the tranny to hold it as you remove the old mount. Cuss alot, use lock nuts as you finish. Then when you are all done share the tips and tricks you came up with.

it is possible to change the mount without pulling the trans, but it's a knuckle buster. You have to pull the front nose cone with it. Take off the mount bolts,nose cone bolts and pull tilt tug the 2 off as a unit. Been about 20 years since I did it, can't recall if you have to do anything else like kick it into a certain gear or not. Course you have to unhook the shift rod under the rear seat. Reinstall with a solid should be a piece of cake, less bulk.
I'm assuming you aren't gonna mind the vibration, increased noise from solid mounts. You'll get used to it. I drove my 65 baja from Phoenix to Boise with solids, full cage,6" widened beam, glass buckets, no long lasting effects except my butt still tickles Wink

nah, extra noise dosnt bother me at all. if i can handle straight headers on my 390 v8 at 3,000 RPM for 200 miles, i can pretty much handle anything. haha.

just a idea, what about cutting a acess hole from the interior ?
that way if you ever need to work on the tranny or shift rod you have a easy way to get at it....

you'd have to cut it throught the floor of the rear cargo area, but all you'd access is the top of the tranny, clutch tube, etc....not much you can do from up there without having to still go underneath. It does help (access wise) to trim the lower lip of the body off even with this cargo floor area...you can reach in easier but you're more vulnerable to mud, rain and snow. Nothing like changing a clutch cable in a foot of snow...been there.
