A lot of these were used in the tri-five, 55-57 Chevrolet cars, where there was NO transmission rear crossmember; the trans just sort of "hung" off the bellhousing. The remedy was to add a rear cross mount to support the trans, especially once more horsepower came into play. And I can agree on the MORONS that would tighten the mounting bolts to force/pull the trans into position; their "ears" should be broken off. Butch/junior stocker.
