    • I am having a hard time finding the desired slave cylinder.

      There were two different styles available. I need the style that mounts fully outside of the bellhousing, in place of the mechanical linkage.



      the one I need is above and on the right below The Napa Part Number is 73173 . Autozone part #: 11956
      OEM part # says "Girling made in UK" and the # 74660580 q5




      this is the one I do not need, but is more common. Napa PN# SC 103460


      Thanks to the guys in THIS and THIS thread on Jeep Forum!

      • Why do you want the motor to sit so low? Is it cog? Would think you would get more clearance having it sit a little higher..

        • Wouldn't the turbo hit the brake booster if it goes higher?

            this is just where it want to be-- any higher & the body will have to be higher- check out the reveal between the body & bellhousing

            Marc-- I don't run a brake booster. Never have. But if I did, I am pretty sure it would hit the intake manifold before it hit the turbo housing

                • Wow that's a lot of bolts on side of block, you expecting lots of torque from the turbo?
                  I've been only running 2 bolts on this side, because the way it lined up with the holes. Did this on the 1st block when swapped in back in 2002 and on the current block swapped in this past fall.

                  • You've been lucky! It is not uncommon for the 3 bolt mounts to snap the cast mounts right off of the block. There are a few aftermarket motor mount kits available with the same 5 bolt setup, so i figured why not replicate what they are doing. Not a whole lot more work, while i am here.

                    I am surprised that only two of the holes line up on yours. You are running OEM CJ mounts or aftermarket CJ mounts? I had to wallow out the mounting holes on the previous set of MORE Bombproof mounts. The OEM 4.0 mounts had bolted right up to this 4.2 block.

                    • Think it's the OEM CJ (their from the 4.2). The mounts actually sandwich the block, as in if I didn't have the bolts in the block will not slide through. Just sits on them. Driver side is only 2 (almost 1/2" difference for the 3rd hole), passenger side get all 3.

                      Interesting never heard of the cast mounts breaking. Especially the way I use mine.

                      • I was able to get three bolts on my 4.0 with cj brackets.. I also opened up the hole on the more mounts to allow a larger bolt to be used..

                        Looks good Peter!

                              • Peter did you make the header? I have a question on the location of the wastegate. Is it going to be able to hold a low amount of boost being that its at the back of the header and only dumping one cylinder.
