Street Rod Transmission

How to Determine Which Transmission Crossmember to Use

First - Mock up the engine mounting location using Chassis Engineering mounts. Mock up your
transmission placement aiming for approximately a 2-4 degree downward angle of the tailshaft.

Second - Measure from the bottom of the transmission cushion to approximately the center of the frame.

This will roughly correspond to the transmission drop. This “drop” is measured from the top of the
transmission crossmember tube to the top of the mounting plate.

Chassis Engineering transmission tubes are internally reinforced, heavy duty 1 3/4” OD tubing with 3/16” wall.
Available in 5 different drops and can be cut to the width you need for your frame. To be used with side
engine mounts only to avoid stressing the bellhousing.
