Rick's has it in there catalog, but says "call" for price. Have you tried GM, I know they still sell the crossmember for TH4000, maybe 4speed also?

I've had 3 of these. I got one out of a Firebird. They used the same one in the 4 speed cars. I also got one out of a big block 4 speed Nova. You might also check some of the Nova clones. Someone took a torch to the original one in my car. I guess the headers didn't clear.

Hello Cavemate: did the trans mount lineup with the holes in crossmember or did you have to drill different holes?

It has been a while, but no, I don't recall having to drill anyting. In fact I'm nearly positive I didn't redrill. I do think though that the Muncice was a 70 and up fine spline type if that makes any difference I'm not sure.

William...If he doesn't want it I will take it but that is a cheap price for a real one.

Mr.C & cavemate, usually when the smallblock crossmember will work it is because the engine frame mounts used were also from a smallblock. BB engine frame mounts move the engine about an inch to the passenger side of the car, that is why the BB crossmember is different. All sorts of combinations may work but the General used BB frame mounts with the BB crossmember to avoid all possible conflicts.

You can redrill the SB one. Put everything together and move the trans untill the exhaust fits then redrill crossmember

Could someone tell me the difference in the crossmembers? I understand the difference in the bigblock motor mounts, but I have put a smallblock motor in my bigblock car before and did not notice any differences in anything.
