Gearbox/Transfer Case Mounting Bracket Locations

I've been running into a bit of trouble... my hard drive took a dump on me and I lost most of my tear-down photos for my 1984 D110 (3.5L V8).

I've got my chassis stripped down, cleaned, and powdercoated... the axles are about ready to go back in and the engine is almost ready as well. I just put the Chassis cross member back in and I'm looking at these mounting brackets, trying to remember where they were located.

The engine mounting brackets are welded to the chassis, but there are two more brackets that bolt on... as I recall they support the gearbox and transfer case. Attached are pics of the parts in question. Can anyone hook me up with pictures of how/where these things bolt in?

Thanks,
Scott

I think the bracket with the 4 holes in the base plate went on the gearbox or transfer case itself (the extra tang being for the transmission brake cable) and the one with the three holes went on the chassis (on the drivers side of the vehicle) but I'm not certain on that or on how they're oriented.

Assuming your truck is a RHD just for orientation.

The part in your 1st pic bolts to the T-Case (back of the trans if its an LT95) on the Passenger side using the 4 holes. There is another part not shown that bolts to the frame and the rubber mount fits in between them using the single hole you see on this bracket and a slot in the missing one.

The part in your 2nd pic bolts to the frame on the driver's side using the 3 holes. There is a plate that bolts to the T-Case not shown in your pic and the rubber mount fits between them using the slot in this bracket and a hole in the other.

Does that help?

yep, it sure does... I'll snap some pics of the two pieces I believe you're talking about (as missing) later, to confirm that I'm on track.

Thanks,
Scott

ok...

1st pic, 1st post: bolts to the T-Case (back of the trans) on the Passenger side using the 4 holes (the largest of the 4 brackets, with the additional tang for the transmission brake cable)

2nd pic, 1st post: bolts to the frame on the driver's side using the 3 holes (the larger flatter of the two brackets with 3 mounting holes)

1st pic, this post: bolts to the frame on the passenger's side using the 3 holes (the simpler of the two brackets with 3 mounting holes)

2nd pic, this post: bolts to the T-Case (the flat plate with 5 holes)

you can download the factory shop manual for your truck from dozens of different sites, including mine.
The LR parts book for your truck would also probably be invaluable as it would have diagrams that answer these questions. Both can be bought on cd part number is LHP26. I bought mine from Expedition Exchange but they don't list it currently price is around $23 and saves a hell of a lot of head scratching. Probably worth its weight in gold for your restoration.

I have 26, 27 and 28 and use the hell out of them.

Yes, those are the 2 missing brackets. There are 2 types of rubber mount. Older type has M10 studs, newer type has M12. Check the sizes of the slots in the brackets to see what type you will need. If the slots are big enough for the M12 then you can drill out the holes in the other 2 brackets to fit.
