Post by adjunog » Tue Oct 31, 2017 10:05 pm

This is a '69 IRS fastback and I can't find this plate anymore but I don't think it attaches to the frame or I could be wrong. NO FRAME HORNES. It does have the long hanger mount attached to near the oil pump. Its been so long I put the car together so I forgot or misplaced some parts. Do I need a trans mount?
I do have one of these.

Thanks.

Perhaps that was left in place as a muffler, AC condenser or skidplate mount?

Late T3s just have a mount at the nosecone and engine hangers.
I just swapped in an automatic in my 73 square, same deal.
(almost easier with a T4 motor as it was designed for engine mounts and driving/mounting an AC compressor)

Supported that way it actually works better, Vanagons and even 912/911 Porsches were ~same way.
Late Bay busses had similar setup but also had a couple hangers at the top of the bell housing.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...
