    ....continuing from last update of transmission rebuild.

    A toyota 2C engine & housing bought and an adaptor plate got fabricated to fit between the 2C housing and Jeep tranny.

    This setup works with Jeep clutch plate, 2C pressure plate, 2C clutch bearing etc.

    Tranny's top gear shaft fits into 2C fly wheel with a modified bearing setup.

    Engine and tranny was transported to the machine shop of plate maker. This plate has holes & threads at appropriate positions to accomodate exact centre-to-centre fitting of engine and tranny.

    It is visible in one of tranny photos, fitted on front of tranny.

    Hi,
    As promised i have seen the site. The best part about your thread is that you have done most of the work on your jeep yourself. Thanks for all the tips. Nice paint job on the body.

    Engine Mounting Issues

    This is the one of toughests part in restoration.

    I know that most people leave these issues to the mechanics and experienced machanics have found the most suitable solutions to these issues. But to provide an insight of the Jeep engine swaps for interested members, I will mention some of these here.

    While determining the position of engine the following issues need to be addressed,

    -Straighten the line of engine parallel to frame
    -Clearance of engine from firewall
    -Clearance of engine oil pan from front differential
    -Angle of drive shafts
    -Clearance of left engine foundation from steering box
    -Clearance of self starter from steering box
    -Position of fan with relation to radiator

    Engine Mounting

    The issues mentioned in previous post were resolved one by one and often one solution creates another problem.

    For engine-to-firewall clearance, the whole drive train has to be moved forward a couple of inches.

    Engine oil pan was modified for clearance with front differential.

    Transmission was not moved side ways, so as not to effect drive shafts angle.

    An adaptor plate was made to move the left engine foundation a few inches forward. This clears its position from the steering box.

    About half inch packing above transmission mount and raising engine a few degrees from front, created a half inch clearance between self starter motor and steering box.

    During all this process engine was mounted temporarily on jack and supports. However, the transmission mount was fixed.

    Tub was placed to see its fiiting and clearance. Minor adjustments were made in engine position.

    Finally, line of engine was set parallel to frame side rails. This was accomplised by measuring the equal distance of left frame rail from,
    1-center of engine's front i.e. centre nut of pulley and
    2-the centre of transmission's rear i.e., nut of main shaft

    Once the mounting is finalized, the measurements were taken for new foundations to be welded on frame.

    Engine and body tub was removed. New foundations were fabricated from thick steel sheet and welded on frame. Before final welding, once again engine was mounted to see its fitting with new foundations. After minor grinding the foundations were finally welded.
