I spent all day yesterday trying to get my motor/tranny in the car correctly.
Getting the motor mounts in the slots on the kmember wasn't issue but even with everything squared up correctly the transmission mount always sits about 1-1.5 inches to far forward to get the bolts through the slots on the cross member.
I can't for the life of me figure out why this would be unless the mounts I got are incorrect. I have to wait till Monday to call summit or ES to confirm what I have is correct, but everything I've read/seen pics of leads me to believe they are the right ones.
I tried two different crossmembers that I had, neither made a difference. (One from my 95, one from this 94.) The only other thing I can possibly imagine is the kmember is sitting too far forward but this seems pretty unlikely.... I bought this car as a roller so I've never had a motor in it myself the kmember looks perfectly stock.
I presume this is for your Project Phoenix, OEM 5.0 block and 94-95 T5. I seem to remember that the crossmember only fits one way, did you flip it around and see if it lined up? The Energy Suspension kit you linked to has the correct mounts - the tranny mount does not have a specific direction.
How would you align it? It just bolts on and no matter which way you put tranny mount on does not effect where the bolt holes end up?
It would be helpful to see a SIDE shot of one if possible.
The mount they sent me the holes for the tranny line up with the holes that connect to the tranny itself. So the mount is strait up and down. Just like the picture on the summit site.
Also I've never had these mounts in a car before, my 95 had stock motor/tranny mounts. I tossed the tranny mount since after the wreck it was BROKE. So I don't even have it to compare it to this one that I have now.
It looks like I need that stupid metal plate to move the mount back a few inches. Right now I'm bolting the mount strait to the transmission. And if I'm looking at it correctly I should be bolting it to that plate which would move it back a few inches into the proper spot.
Hopefully I have that piece somewhere! (I hope I didn't toss it with the old mount that was broken in my wreck...)
Guess worse case I can fab something up. That is a big relief, because at least now I won't have to worry about removing the engine again.
