well the original transaxle mount was torn from the body to the bolt holes, so what did i do? measure the old one then cut it off with a sawzall. Made an even more beefier mount. all was done at home with a hand drill, to bend the metal i used oxy ace rig with the cutting torch attatchment. went as heat metal in vice hammer it and watch it bend. and ideas on improvement or suggestion i will accept. overall the new mount is same height with old mount only an 1/8th or less off.
