Hi Everyone,
Just wondering if anyone has fitted one of these & possibly has some feedback & photos please?

I'm refitting SBC engine with the front mounts (no ability to use engine side mounts)
The original Powerglide is going to be replaced with a TH350 so this kit to attach to the side of the gearbox for more/better support is going in. Also fitting the gearbox crossmember for down near the output shaft. 3 points of contact is better than 2.
Already have this kit :-)

Just wondering if anyone has any photos & feedback.
Thanks greatly in advance
Cheers

Ok, I’m sorry for the delayed response.
I hope these photos work for you. If not, we’ll take more photos once we put the car on blocks for the winter.
To operate all the gears in your tranny, you’ll want to hand-form a piece of 5/16” diameter threaded round bar to fit around the frame horn brackets. We used 2 female spherical bearing heim joints to connect the formed bar (linkage) from the shifter column to the tranny. It may take a few attempts and some patience.
