Transfer case torque mount

OK, I'm an idiot... Dropped the t/c with out paying attention to how the torque mount goes back together. I looked in my assembley manual and the service manual, just one very small pic in it, not much help. Checked out the FAQ's no help. Seems like it's simple enuff, but it doesn't look right when I put it together.

Any pics. or help. pls....

Re: Transfer case torque mount

you are talking about the side mount right, just did mine today, no pics but I'll try to explain the way mine went together. starting from the bottom- larger of the two halves of bushing, then a plate, then the main body of the bracket then the upper bushing and the center sleeve holds it all together. The plate mates right into the body, the curve of the holes match up. hope this is what your looking for, kind of hard to explain.

Re: Transfer case torque mount

Thanks for the help guys, although I am still concerned. Seems wierd that they would have metal to metal on the oval pc. with the 2 holes in it.

Also the ID of the sleeve that goes in the urethane bushing is a little large compared to the original sleeve. Should I worry about this or make another sleeve to match the original specs.

I just rotated the oval plate 180 degrees, and the space between seems to match up better, in the pic you can see the gold anodize...

I would have put the thicker urethane pc. on top...anyway here are some pics.

Re: Transfer case torque mount

Who did you get your mounts through? I have to get mine soon and the only place that I have seen them was LMC.

Trans. mounts bought at 4Xheaven, energy suspension #3.1106R. Great people to deal with. About $50.00

Torque Mount bought at Summit, Prothane 1603, Prothane doesn't carry trans. mounts, only '73 and up. Could be wrong on the part number, so check it out

Hope this helps. J.

Re: Transfer case torque mount

That's not how mine went together. The plate fits into the other main bracket. kind of doubles up the metal so to speak. when the two are placed together they are right next to each other stacked together like if they were going to make a solid piece of steel rather than two separate pieces.

Re: Transfer case torque mount

Hey Ace, your drawing is way better than I could have

Thanks for the help, just finished mounting T/C back onto crossmember. Trying to get it back up into the truck...

My only concern now is the ID of the sleeve, I'll call Prothane tomorrow and see if they can help
Later J.

Re: Transfer case torque mount

Everybody has an opinion but if it were me, I would take that transfercase side mount off and throw it in the trash, especially if you are pumping any respectable power out of the engine. Those side mounts are only good for breaking trans to tcase adapters and cracking bellhousings on automatic trans equipped rigs.

I donít recall those rods on TH350ís but 700R4ís in many years of pickups and G-vans had those rods from the torque converter dust shield up to the engine mount brackets.

Agreed. Even a stock 454 is too much for that T-case side mount.

Re: Transfer case torque mount

hey guys. i have a 1979 k10 and i cant find this torque mount, side mount, strut brace its been called so many different names but i cant find it anywhere. im running a 205 with a th350 and that mount was not on the T case. i was driving down the road and the weight from the T case binded up the u-joint and snapped that off allowing all the weight from the T case to bounce around and it cracked my tranny housing. if anyone knows where to find this mount please send me a link or a general website. thanks

Re: Transfer case torque mount

Some np205s are not drilled for the brace if you look at the passenger side of the case by theframe rail the will be a flat spot with two dimples or two threaded holes if its drilled and tapped my 205 is out of a 78 and isn't drilled so yours may not be either the np203 and 208 also had a arm that went from that point to a belllhousing bolt on auto trans trucks I'm not for sure if the 205 got the same treatment in an auto rig though
