Do you mean the capscrews are being pulled from the top of the actual mount?
As of today, my set-up is broke...no pictures.

The drawing that I attached was an idea that I thought of today. If you look at the picture, the trans housing would sit inside the u shaped metal loop. This loop would be bolted to the trans crossmember by spring loaded bolts...this way the loop could give a bit yet still take the strain off the mount. The inside of the loop would have a hard rubber lining that would sit against the trans housing to prevent chafing. I can see it in my head but I hope I explained it well enough.

The car is a 1985 Firebird with a TH-350.
