I have seen aluminum bellhousing broken on 55 - 57 Chevrolets that had Turbo 350 and Turbo 400's installed with the front mount and a crossmember under the transmission. TOO MUCH strain on the middle of this combination....

Many years ago when I had 55's , I made side motor mounts and a transmission support like the later models for my 55 . Now there are pre fabbed kits....to do the same thing. Chevrolet went to the side mount engine mounts and transmission supports in 1958.........and still use the same type system today.......that's got to tell you something
