    Does anyone have a good company that they have used for this? TCI has a bolt in one, but is there a company that has a more complete one? Or anything comparable? Thanks in advance.

    I dont know of anyone that makes a K member. If you are just going to open drive and need to mount a th350 or T5, then you can make a X-member for about $20-$40. Like the pic above, just cut out the center of the stock X-member and bolt in some sturdy square tubing that doesnt curve up.

    You can use the original K-member no problem. Just make a nice, heavy plate to bolt to the top of the K-member that extends back far enough to bolt onto your trans mount. I have a 350/Turbo 350 in my '53 with the original K-member, no problems. Just use heavy enough steel so it doesn't flex all over the place.
    Chassis Engineering sells them, but I just made mine:
