    which adapter are you using. the the short one takes the w crossmember. the tall one takes the flat crossmember. stock 700/208 would have had the flat crossmember.

    My 83 has a regular old crossmember with the two piece mounts on each side , same mounts are on my 350/203 combo . Now my friends 89 Burb has the one piece trans mount and the W crossmember .

    I think 85 or 86 went to the newer crossmember .

    now that I look at it, it must be year specific because my 83 has a flat one and my 85 has a W. they are both 700/208.

    if you use the short adapter and a clocking ring you can get the bottom of the truck a lot more flat. You will have to make a new x-member though. This is going to be a winter project for me. I have all the parts, now just have to do the work.

    I have both. I'm planning on a T-case swap this Holiday with a home made cross-member, so both factory members will be up for trade/sale.

    That's the kind of JY you want to visit ~twice a month, just in case something special comes in, and those prices make it a steal.:D
