    do you mean like the frame mount on the 205? There is of course the adapter mount but I know of no other mount for the 203. You could probably fabricate a support rod to the bellhousing if you are really worried about it.

    i was meaning more like the rear. maybe fab one to the skidplate. or is it not neccessary? it just seems odd with that chunk of cast iron hanging there.

    I wouldn't mount the t case to the skid plate. The idea of the skidplate is that it takes the blows not the case. If you hit the skid plate and the case it mounted to it the force will flow into the cast iron case and I'd expect breakage. Don't think there is any reason to worry about a second mount on a 203.
