It's time to pull the transmission on my Chevy and I want to put in a bolt-in transmission mount. The previous owner welded in a mount from some donor car. I remembered seeing an article a couple of years ago in R&C (I think) but cannot find the article that listed who made the engine/trans mounts for these early Chevys.

Does anyone know of a company who makes a TH400 into a '52 Chevy bolt-in transmission mount?

Thanks for your help.

You should be able to easily modify a stock GM crossmember froma Camaro or Nova or other midsize car to use in yours. Might even be as simple as adding a couple brackets to the frame and bolting the stock member in place.

When I do swaps like this, I use the outer thirds of the original mount so that I have two stubs bolted to the car, then just fill in the middle third with a piece of the middle of a crossmember that will fit the transmission. Weld the 3 pieces together and you have a low-buck mount that unbolts like stock.
