    I know this will have somewhat of a limited market, but what the hell......
    So, I've been struggling to find a way to mount the rear end of my 51 hydramatic in my Model A.
    I just couldn't get a straight answer from anyone about finding a stock type mount (a downside to living in the UK)
    Then I noticed on a shelf in my garage an unused VW front gearbox mount... A heavy duty CB Performance Rhino mount...it's pretty much a perfect fit

    You can see that the yellow pad is flush
    With the Ali surround on 3 sides, so I cut those 3 edges back,

    Then it bolts right up....

    This was really holding me up, now I can sort out the chassis mount and press on...

    Thought it might help someone someday...
