torque mount on 205

how did you do the torque mount on the drivers side of the 205? Did you make new engine mounts? Put a 351w c6 np205 in my 70 and the tcase torque mount landed below the top of the frame and is almost tight against.

basically fabbed a new torque mount bracket that would let me mount an isolator bushing between the mount & frame.
I will try to post a pic in a couple of days.

Decided after my trip to GOLD MT TN that the front 3link was not strong enough & decided to go with a 4link.
the only way I could get it to work was to move the front axle up another 9" & shorten the links. (118" wb)

That meant new stronger frame mounts;


Beefier axle mounts;

Four links;


Test flex;


After test flexin it was apparent that the tube fenders needed to be moved up 2'' & the front bumper & grill needed some trimming.

I was able to save the factory headlights. However the bezels will require some trimming.

Turned out nice & it still needs a test ride, but I probably wont be able to go wheeling until the fall. Way too much to do on my sons '70 FJ40.

Thanks,
still have to make a front drive shaft & extend my front ARB air line.
Also ditched my RAMSEY 8000 industrial winch because the worm drive gearbox hung down too low & the steering ram could smack the bottom of it @ full compression.
So I will probably get a RAMSEY 8500 & have to fab a new mount for it in the front.

Decided with the axle way forward of the oil pan I could get a little more oil capacity. So I modified the oil pan



Installed.



I'm at 7.5 qts & still not on the dipstick. Ran out of AMSOIL & need to order more before I find out just how much it will hold. I'm guessing 12-14 qts

Any baffling in the pan for off angle? Did you extend the pickup tube or is the pan the same overall depth? Looks pretty sweet!
