So im gonna pull my tranny tonight or tomorrow to have the mount re welded yet again since it cracked off. My question is, since i have heard some say the getrag is a PITA to instal...
Is there a special issue or problem when aligning the getrag? Or is it just as simple as all the other trannies? Jw before i go and do this the way i always do it on other cars..

Takes 2 to make it easier.

ok yeah haha but no special alignment with the getrag? just somethin i heard from some guy
03-08-2010, 09:23 PM
Oh and where can i get one of those triangle mounts for the side of the lower mount? I have cracked my mount twice in two weeks

Not sure what you are doing to break the triangle bracket, but I have full poly mounts and stage 3 clutch on the original bracket. That's a lot of drivetrain shock.
The Getrag is tough to re-install because it is heavier than the MTX-75 and it's really difficult to get it back in there without a trans. jack or an engine hoist. Or, if you drop the subframe, it makes life easier.

I can manage all the weight and whatever since i have a good size shop with all the tools. I was just wantin to know if there were special alignment features that most transmission dont have...
Ill take that as a no

but where can i get that triangle mount?

i would guess you would either have to go dealer or junk yard or just custom fab yourself one with steel plate

Did they come on all svt's?
^^^Yes. (if you're referring to the 3 hole mounting bracket)
There are specific procedures to follow for alignment.
See the Clutch TSB 4-21-19, as it lists what to do:
^^^2 Dowel Pins to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
There's also a few installation notes and torque specs towards the end of the document.
PS...where is your tranny breaking??

ill get a pic up for you soon. But right where the bolt goes through the tranny where the lower dogbone mount attaches. Ive shattered that area twice now....
You know where i can get that triangle thing and maybe a part number?
Without crawling under the car, I have no idea what the part number is.
I get most of my parts from Tousley Ford.
