Has anybody got a fab drawing of a gearbox xmember for a muncie box behind 308 red motor with hq engine mounts or a measurement of the output shaft position to tunnel so I can fab my own.
I'm also chasing hole position for shifter cut out.
I'm running a speco shifter.

I had a crossmember here out of a UC with SBC and Muncie but I think it’s gone. Was just folded flat plate. Will have a look and see if still here. I have a feeling though it left here with the last LH body that was here.

Thought more about it, I put it on the SLR5000 body after I stripped it, and it was on the shell when I took it over the Classicozwreck where Greg cut it up for body sections. I remember seeing it on the shell when there wasn’t much of it left, so it would have gone to scrap now.
One of these for $200 is probably a better thing anyway:

I have one of those fitted. I do remember there is a 10 mm thick steel plate shim between the central mount with the slots and  the original holden transmission mount though.  The bolts go through the slots, then the shim, then into the muncie extension housing.

And I'm an idiot - when I said "The bolts go through the slots, then the shim, then into the muncie extension housing."  I meant that the bolts in the centre go through the shim to the std holden trans mount base, two outer bolts go through that mount into the muncie ears.
