    After helping a friend install his new clutch over the weekend I noticed that his t-case has a bracket with bushings that mounts to the frame for additional support. Mine doesn't have one. It probably should right? His blazer is a 70 just like mine but he is running a Dana 20 and I have a NP 205.

    M71 with M465 /NP204 and 72 with TH350/NP205 both have the bracket. You should have a couple of holes in the bottom of the frame where yours "was". GM still has the rubber cushions.
    Good luck

    There should also be some corresponding holes in the side of the frame for the upper bushing bracket...

    Yeah, Steve is right. The bracket is L-shaped and bolts along the bottom and side frame rails. I assume your frame will have these holes, as it appears to be a production characteristic.
