T5 mount
#1
anyone know of an easy way to get a mount for a 1985 T5 on a 1973 mach 1? ive seen on modern driveline they have a mount, but its 150 bucks. anyone know if theres a mount from another car i can get cheaper that will fit?

I used the c-6 crossmember and original trans mount. I had to section the mounting plate on the crossmember 1/2" to lower the back of the trans for floor clearance. I'm using the 94-97 T-5 which is about 3/4" longer than the Fox body cars.

thanks for that reply Jeff!

I am looking at T5s and was staying away from the newer ones now there's a wider range to choose from?

Does the 94-97 trans have the same front shaft, bell housing (302?) dimensions etc as the earlier ones?

TIA!

The 94-7 trans has a deeper bellhousing and longer input. I used the 3.8 V6 bell housing, they are easier and cheaper... the bonus is they use the 164 tooth flywheel and 11" clutch.

Rocket-
Agree on going with the known quantity! When we did our conversion, I was budget minded and found the parts on Craigslist, and boy what a time I had "learning" the right way to put it together. I ended up calling the guys at Modern and they were great about helping me understand what I had , what I needed and how to hook it up the right way. Had I only known about 7173 Forum back then!!
