Post TH400 crossmemeber same as glide ?

I'm swaping an old Poweglide trans for a Turbo 400 behind my big block in a 69 Chevelle, and I was wondering if anyone knows if the Crossmembers are the same. Many of the resto suppliers don't even carry crossmembers, so if they are different I may need to ebay or flea market one. I don't think the bone yards even have stuff that old here in Jersey anymore.

once you get your trans. mount, its not that hard to cut off the old bolt plate on the powerglide crossmember and make a new one to fit your new trans. mount, then it would probably work out, but if i were you, i would take a few measurements, make sure the crossmember will let the trans. sit on it where it should and everything, then check the trans. mount to the crossmember, it could be the same, if not i'd just bust out the drill press and welder and make one

It's been a few years since I looked under one of those things. I think the crossmember goes all of the way across the body from one side to the other. If so, there were extra bolt holes in the frame rails for moving the crossmember back. Those cars did have TH400 available in them, I believe.

slide cross member back should already have extra holes in frame. the old days they would give you many options of trans and engines. tounge should be the same as the glide mount 2 holes the 400 trans mount is wider at trans case.
