Engineered to facilitate installing a Chrysler 518 overdrive automatic
transmission into a 1970 - 1972 Dodge/Plymouth Mopar B or E 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 (#10473052) 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.
