1. Which motor mounts should I go with. I drive back roads and gravel roads with very little off roading on the farm.
2. The other day it just died and back fired. I noticed 3 vacuum ports missing hoses on the carb. Also it may be out of timing. After a few minutes it fired up and I continued my drive.
I just bought the jeep last Friday
Stock motor mounts should be just fine for general driving conditions. If the back roads are bad washboards I would recommend polyurethane mounts. I have a 79 CJ5 that goes through stock rubber mounts like nothing. Poly solved the problem.
For the carb question, I would recommend getting all of the vacuum lines routed correctly or capped off which ever is appropriate then tackle the running problems. The carb won't work right nor the distributor if there
