Must be doing the drive cogs while it’s apart? I found cutting the rivers down through the worn nylon sprocket with a cutoff wheel on angle grinder then gingerly working the side plates of works best. Stainless nylons and bolts for the install.

I'm glad that idea is working for you, and you were able to get the castings without too much trouble!

We just used some sections of rubber belting, roughly 3/8" thick, between the GM castings and the Tucker frame mounts. We cut the frame mounts down so they could be welded to the inside (rather than the top) of the Tucker frame. This mounting location allowed for excellent alignment off the transmission output and transfer case input. But, as you know, your situation my be different as the engine placement may dictate something else entirely.

(Really enjoying this thread!!!)

…….… yes, the shape of mounting brackets adds a lot of support. it took some serious ''leg-work'' , web surfing, emails, text, phone calls, etc... to locate a set. all the way from Stockton. the right side mount almost sets perfect to the frame. the left side will require alittle more Fab. work, due to the fact that the Allison doesn't align to the ''B'' perfectly straight /inline. it is slightly ''cantered'' offset in the bolt pattern. fairly common with a lot of diesel's . it was less of a drastic offset ..''CCW''...as opposed to the ''CW'' offset. so that will be the next task at hand.... thx again BFT....
