Open driveline motor mounting???

Going open driveline for next year and really wondering how you are mounting your motors now that there is no tranny mount to hold the rear. I'll be using stock adapter and nv4500 bell with the reverser mounted to it. Are u using stock mounts still? Front mounts ? Rear mounts ? Thanks for any info ...

I made a mount and cross member that bolts to where the 3 bolts where the ac compressor bracket mounted. Has the same 3 on the driver side. I used a piece of 3/8 aluminum plate and i took the stock backing plate and had it machined down the exact thickness of the plate. I sandwich the plate between the bell housing and backing plate. I welded angle iron to the frame to bolt the plate to.
Thanks, Jeremy

Front and rear motor plates would be the way to go. Basically what Jeremy described above.

I made plates that bolted to the back of the bellhousing flange using the bellhousing bolts and welded tabs to the frame for them to bolt to. And kept the factory motor mounts. It's a cheap way of doing it, but worked all last season with no issues

Regular motor mounts and I made my own adapter plate to use a sfi rated nv4500 bell housing. Bolted that to plates on frame.
