    I'm having trouble mounting new trans mount onto the frame cross member. The original mount is like a shock mount (two peices of rubber and flange washers) and the new mount is rectangular rubber with a 7/16" stud in the middle. The directions I got tells you to bolt on new mount to adapter plate and then drop into center hole... The center hole is like almost an inch in diameter. There is two other holes drilled in the crossmember but they're not center... I think. :confused:

    The great ford gods are mad at you. To apease them you must first pull that combo out and throw it in the nearest lake. Then go and find a flatv8 and bring it home. Place it on the floor infront of tthe merc with a 500w halogen light shining on it. Close the garage and leave for 48 hours, then come back in on your knees and beg your car for forgiveness. ONLY way I see this working. Just say'in!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If I could afford the ford price I would do it... but I can't. Thanks Hanginlow58... I believe I will weld in some quarter inch plate.
