Evidently, you have a truck bellhousing.....Which presents a little problem.....Do you have the original transmission with no provision for mounting? How is the engine and transmission mounted in the vehicle at this point?
Here are photos of a truck bellhousing (top photo) and a TriFive at the bottom.
What you have is a truck bell housing. You will need to get the correct passenger car housing or convert to a cross member and side engine mounts. You can't use a cross member and stock front mounts or the engine will not be properly supported to keep it from torquing side to side excessively. Original bell housings are not hard to find or expensive however they are a bit pricey to ship due to the weight. :anim_25:
