Bob,

What you have now is what I started with on my 57. Here's what I did. Mine has a Muncie instead of auto. Same problem with exhaust routing. (2.5 inch exhaust pipes coming from rams horn exhaust manifolds). Bought the one like Acardon posted. Same problem, not enough clearance. On to plan C. Took the original one and cut and "notched" it up so exhaust pipes went through the "notches". Since it was made out of square tubing, it was relatively easy to do.

These our some other crossmembers I have considered. I bought a kit from Performance Online a couple years back and just now getting ready to install it. I have the same crossmember as the OP has. I like these xcrossmembers better for the same reasons. Any experience with either of these kits? The kit from Speedway uses self tapping bolts. Do you think they are strong enough?
Hopefully whatever comments/replies will help the OP & myself.

This is what I'm expecting today. Hopefully install it this weekend.

Personally, I think that being tubular will be stronger and won't fatigue. I plan to replace the self tapping bolts with longer bolts that go through the frame.

Note the 1/4 angle bracket mounted to the frame where the current tranny mount is bolted to. This angle bracket will be used to mount the Danchuk 12198 support.

do not drill all the way thru the frame. not needed and can cause frame buckling. use a nutsert in the inside wall . the only way to bolt thru the frame is if you put a sleeve into the frame to prevent crush.

I see what you mean, but it's too late. The holes were drilled for the other crossmember. The 1/4 inch thick angle bracket will keep the inside from caving in. I may have to use a similar bracket on the outside of the frame. Being 1/4 inch thick and angled will give it a lot of strength.
