its still drivable but i'm pretty sure the tranny rotates a little when theres alot of torque going through it, like when i'm using first gear, which isnt that often.(4 speed o yea). I welded up this plate thin at the top of the tranny when i had it oot at scool last year but it been lifted, d60ed and super swamped since then. plus i'm puttingh in a bad ass 300 6 pretty soon. the motors finished i just gotta get it in the truck. so if this has happened to you and you know of a way to beef up the tranny mounts easily and cheap please let me Know.

put a stock tranny mount in (rubber) and use a torque chain to stop it from blowing the mount again

it's light it's fast it's powerful

I gotta new motor going in and i'm afraid of the extra torque twisting the tranny and t-case right outa the truck. how much stress is the tranny being put through[?] would just the crossmember on the bottom side of the tranny be enough[?]

U mean your tail shaft is suspended [?]
Most mounts are load bearing.
Under side.
may be that is your problem the tail shaft should sit on the cross member.... not hang from it.:D

Got it fixed. what the problem was was that the studs sticking out the bottom of the mount and through the cross member had been comletely destroyed. the studs were still sticking out the cross member but they just shook around not connected to anything on the the top. had to cut them out. put the new mount in and holyshit does it feel and sound better. no more shifter shakin all over the place when your driveing. no more mystery noises either.

If the studs are long enough double bolt it and torque them together.
Or a Polish lockwasher and mash the threads so they can't back off.

How does a tension chain work. I imagine it just holds off some of the weight against the actuall mount??

Use the tension chain idea, put it on the drivers side, get a chinch with right an left hand threads so u can adjust the tension, then when the motor torques the tensioner with limit the movement of the motor. I used one in my race car for yrs.
