Unhappy Land Cruiser T/Case mount pics????

I have been searching the archives for pictures of a rear transfer case mount setup for a Land Cruiser that is made to go over the T/case, in front of the parking brake drum and behind the T/case. It suspends the T/case from the top instead of supporting it from the bottom. Has anyone seen this mount setup or have a link to it?

Just got finished with the crossmember. It attaches to the frame with the two bolts. The plate just clears the gas tank (pre '79) and attaches with a sigle bolt that is threaded into the bar. The two holes in the plates are there so the rivets can be recessed allowing the plate sits flat on the frame. I think it should work out well....we will see.

are you running stock motor or v8? if v8, you may want to support the transmission instead.

Installing a generation III 6.0L, NV4500 and Orion. If I support the transmission, the mount will hang to low.

Thanks, treeroot. I really appreciate the pics.



Fantastic use of the Energy Susp poly mount!

Talking Land Cruiser T/case mount pics????

Thanks for the replies, the great links and all the pics. Some great ideas and workmanship in these mount setups. It appears that the 420 & 465 do not have an output shaft that protrudes beyond the back of the transfer case. Is this correct? Anyone else willing to post some pics of their T/case or trans mounting configurations?

you are correct...the output on the muncies is just enough to get the gear on in the tcase.

Just wondering why the stock 3 speed / tcase didn't have a mount on the back. Is there really a need for one if you're running a plate adaptor? I ran one of the AA style one's with their long adaptor & over time had a problem with the tcase backing away from the adaptor. Anyone NOT running a tcase brace to the frame?

they didn't need one since the engine had mounts on all four corners and the trans and t case were light enough to be held by those mounts. many people have the problem with the aa mount. redfox told me that since he eliminated that and put a crossmember supporting his transmission he's never had a problem...over five years now. i did the same thing and so far six months later, not a drop

I've got that AA style that bolts onto the back of the t-case.
It sucks. It leaks all the time now. Even with loctite I have to re-torque them all the time.

SM420's aren't *that much heavier than the stock 3 speed. Now SM465's are
way heavier....... I wasn't gonna run one w / my plate adaptor, but hey what's a few hours of fab time & some scrap steel for a sound piece of mind that it'll be secured.

I came across a small oversite that may lead to the continued leaking of the A/A propeller style mount. In the A/A instructions it says to drill a hole in the mount to match the oil return passage in the cone and rear bearing area on the back of t-case . I checked , and sure enough , the PO never did this and my A/A mount leaked like hell. I put in orion so studs won't loosen in cast iron I hope and drilled the hole so the mount won't leak anymore. Check yours , if you have the mount that has a welded cone then you have to use a grinder or something and create a channel for the oil to flow to the return hole. My neww orion case had the return hole identical to stock case. The stock steel cones have a little stamped chennel that lines up with the return hole.

I included the oil passage on the back of my crossmember plate. No leaks yet.

SM420 = 135 lbs
SM4765 = 175 lbs
