Re: is this crossmember 6 cyl manual only?

found a truck with V8 manual transmission and crossmember is in different holes

see the attached pictures i took for reference, any help will greatly be appreciated

and yes it broke the bellhousing, i think its only a 6 cyl bellhousing part also because of starter mounting in bellhousing
Could be a special L6 292-only crossmember. They were only used on 4x4 trucks with a 292. 250s could be mounted on a conventional crossmember. C/ model trucks didn't need a special crossmember for a 292.

See pix:

Every 25 years I like to rebuild that 292, whether it needs it or not.
