Engineered to facilitate installing a Chrysler 518 overdrive automatic
transmission into a Dodge/Plymouth Mopar A Body car. Requires additional
fabrication and welding.
Made from 3/16 thick steel, this replaces the factory transmission cross-member transmission mount. Provides the additional height and width required to for the 518 Transmission. Additional clearance may be required including cutting the factory crossmember for the transmission tail-shaft
and the speedometer or VSS cable/sensor. The factory floor remains in
the original location. Requires welding in the replacement USCT
transmission mount tab. The tab is designed to accept the common GM 2 bolt style mount transmission insulator. The USCT cross-member is a fully boxed
section, engineered to provide the structural integrity that would be
lost by removing the factory cross-member. The kit includes the
cross-member, lower transmission mount tab, Grade 8 mounting hardware and
instructions for installation. The GM style insulator is not included and is available in almost every auto parts store. The components are factory jig welded, ready for installation. Requires
fabrication and welding to install.
