tilted trans

I've noticed this for years, but finally decided to find out why. Can't say as I've ever seen a vehicle that didn't have the trans tilted to the drivers side. I could see having the mount tilted to counteract engine torque, but why the trans?

I don't know what you are talking about either, engine and trans are always level side to side on any RWD car/truck I've ever seen with the exception of the weird 15 tilted T-5 manual trans in the 3rd generation Camaro/Firebird.

Maybe you need to get your eyeball recalibrated??

Trannys not on the level

Some GM vehicles from the 50`s had a 4speed hydro that was tilted for clearence ,of what I`m not sure. I had a Tork stick hydro,"POS" I might add and the small block Chevy bellhousing made it level. The tilted ones worked properly. Go figure.

I know exactly what 61bone is talking about. I still have a couple of old Pontiac bell housings from the early 60s. The transmission tilts toward the drivers side, with the engine level.

Some transmissions do tilt to the side.

And so do some motors, Slant 6 Chrysler for example.
