Trany Mounts?

Well, its now time to mount my SM456/NP205 to the frame and I am just wondering about trany mounts. The stock ones are pretty well shot (torched the one to get it off the old Th350/NP203. Anyway, for the puller want something thats going to hold everything together with all that torque of the alky BBC. So what I am wondering if it would just be better to do a solid mount than going with a mount like what Energy Suspension has. Going solid will also be ALOT cheaper but I am not sure how much its going to twist up my frame. I will also be going with solid mounts on the engine so any advice on that would be great too.

Re: Trany Mounts?

You don't want to mount the trans solid. It will break bellhousings or trans cases. I have not built any pullers, but with drag cars and mud draggers you don't mount trans solid with solid mounted engine.
How are mounting the engine? If you use engine plates you will want to fab a bar to comp for flex in the plates. They will flex toward the front or rear of the truck.
A couple of books on the subject, How to build a racing powerglide by J.W. performance transmissions and Door Slammers the chassis book by Dave Morgan.
