300 TDI R380 Defender build

I am building a 300 TDI Defender 110. I have a new 300 frame. My question is what am I missing here on the transmission mounts? The original off the LT77 don't line up with the welded on frame mounts. Is there an actual 300 TDI R380 combination that works for this? I want this to be a factory install not something modified. Does anyone have a picture of a factory looking chassis with engine and transmission installed?

Those mounts only work with the 300tdi center cross support...

I "assume" if he has a new 300TDI frame, he has a new cross member.

Well you know what they say about people who assume... I was just making a statement that those brackets are specific to a certain support mount that doesn't appear in the picture... There are two ways to skin this cat...

Let's hope that with a new galvanized frame and the stated desire to be a factory install, he uses the proper crossmember.....

Considering there are two factory r380 brackets that use the stock locations then he can choose. Yes there is a Deisel factory and a petrol factory... He can choose which way he wants to go, if he has the 300 transmission frame support it is a no brainer... I am not arguing with you, just making a point, that there are two stock configurations to mount an r380 into a chassis.
