The picture jimfulco posted is for a big block, will not fit a small block. You may have to change the tail housing for one that has the mount in a different location.

I have one of those in a '69 Nova with a 327. The factory only used them with big-blocks because they only used T400's with big-blocks in Camaros & Novas. The mount pad is offset a little farther to the right than the small-block crossmember (which looks totally different), due to the big-block engine mount brackets, which place the engine farther to the right than a small-block. I had to enlarge the holes in the mount pad so they would line up with the trans mount. My T400 came from a '67 Impala & has the 4" tailshaft housing. I don't think the longer T400's will fit at all.

Check with Rick's (look at the bottom of the list at the left of the page & click on "Crossmembers & Rear Mounts")

Thanks for all the replies and information. I'm going to go ahead with the new crossmember, it sounds like i'll just have to do a little mods to make it fit. If that doesn't work there is alway this option....

You can easily modify your th350 crossmember to fit. Can you weld? or know anyone that can? If so just modify the crossmember you have. Cut the mounting ear off and move it to the other side of the crossmember. It will take an hour max to do it. A little grinding and a couple welds.
