    Does anyone know where to find the fuel tank mounting bushings for a 75 CJ-5? If not, I'll have to find some material to make them with.

    I made some from rubber stoppers.

    There is a restoration hardware site for old cars - I forget the site name though - they might have something.

    Following is an image of the original fuel-tank bushings and the newer bushings fabricated with rubber grommet's. Using washer on both sides with a good lock nut will ensure to slightly squeeze the grommet to allow proper operation. The original grommets had been over torqued.

    The newer grommets are on the bolts... the original grommets are adjacent.
