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 stud-type transmission mount (#10473052)
. 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)(#2378) 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.
