Colin strikes again,
The CC supplied rear mount is not even close.  It's dimensionally too small and the hole pattern is wrong as well.  The design goes straight across . Can the original drop cross support be used with the Toyota mount without creating an undesirable angle to the rear end?
Thanks,
John

John,

You actually don't want everything in the powertrain lined-up perfectly.  Sounds strange, yes, but a little out-of-line wobble is necessary to keep the bearings in the driveshaft rotating.  So don't worry about getting things 'perfect'.

With my W58 conversion I had to fabricate maybe a 4"-6" long boxed cantilevered piece of steel to span between the stock JH trans mount and the W58 mount.  If you have access to a MIG welder, etc. it's not difficult, just time consuming.  Mine's been in place for about 5 years now so I can't complain.

Judson,
Maybe with some luck it will all drop into place similar to what Erik Harkes has a picture of in the JHPPG site
Thanks,
John
