Hello nice to meet yall...need help with my l92/6l80e swap

Hey guys ..I have been a lurker for a while but now that im doing my 6.2 swap into my 77 c10 i thought it was necessary and only right to contribute since i have gathered so much information thanks to this board and really alot of motivation ha come from the build threads yall have.Just wanted to say Thanks and im here to post now and share all things i encounter with my build. This is my build thread http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...=1#post6976369

Anyways i have a mjor question.i have engine mounted now along with tranny inside engine bay by way of dirty dingo engine mounts which are spot on and I am haveing trouble with the 6L80e and finding a transmission mount for it.You see its very weird.I went to all auto parts stores and the 2 mounts they sell for this tranny wont fit onto my tranny tail end..So what am i to do does anybody have experience with this?? below are the pictures. first 2 are of the piece that came on the bottom of my 6l80e well i cant get that to mount to the tranny mounts that they sell for my tranny.I am using a stock transmission crossmember and yes i have thought that this may be my problem but i am not having issues getting tranny mount to mount onto crossmember but i cannt get the tail end of tranny to correctly mount onto the mount itself.last 2 pictures are of the tranny mounts the bigger one being the rear wheel drive version and the smaller mount being the all wheel drive version. please help...6L80E guys..

Hi,
I had to modify my stock tranny mount to lower my 6L80. I will have to see if I can dig up some pics of it. BTW, I used the stock mount that came with the trans.

Thanks Houston Ben,i really hope you find the pics.I cant figure it out.I have no idea what part of my tranny is missing...

UPDATE.. I spoke to precious owner .Apparently the piece i have is one custom made by him and i now need the original piece that went under the tranny that fits onto the tranny mount? Does anybody know where to get this piece????

Junkyard would be your best bet to find that kinda piece.

When I had a 6.0/4l80e that I was swapping into my truck, I recall the trans mount was this model. This was the OE unit so I don't see why you couldn't set it up using the factory piece.....
