No, sadly the previous owner didn't give me the transmission mount, just the cross member. I have a roadster transmission laying in my parts stash and I thought that one had a mount I could steal from it and to my surprise it was also missing it. x.x  

He also forgot to give me the throttle linkage that hooks to the carb, and $100 for a new one feels like a lot tbh. :o


You know this is a beautiful car; it's still got a good engine but until we get that piece that fixes the engine its not going anywhere.

Doubtful a Roadster mount would be the same as a 510. Often the transmission is used in many applications. It's easier to engineer a mount for each vehicle than to modify each transmission.

The Roadster mount bolts to the cross member are 4 inches apart center to center, they are almost as far apart as the mount pattern to the transmission.

Well just found out that the transmission mount holes are the same, but the crossmember mount holes aren't. Which means the chevy mount works, but it will need to be adapted to the cross member like the roadster one too. To my luck the previous owner has the original 510 tranmission mount so I'll be picking it up tomorrow from him.

Also my flywheel has A67 written on it I believe. What does that mean? I also placed a 510 clutch on it to see if it was the same size as the matting surface and it seems to be spot on. The L20B came with a W58 head and I think someone on here said it usually comes with a 200mm flywheel.
