Are you using the front mounts by the timing cover, or the mid mounts under the second exhaust ports?
Bellhousings typically break when you use a front mount and a trans mount on the tailshaft of the trans. Hanging all that weight from the far ends puts too much stress on the bellhousing.

These style mounts are supposed to be used with the trans mounts that are on the bellhousing.
