classic v. modern g/box mounts
The gearbox mount that bolts on to the crossmember is different between the above mentioned. For this case lets compare a C10 to a T5. the C10 bolts on with two threads and nuts onto the crossmember, and has no real give, eg. rubber cushioning. The T5 bolts up with one thread and nut, and has a large rubber spacer which allows some give.
My question is why the difference? And which mounting is best in the XC with the T5? I currently have a single bolt through crossmember, but have also seen two bolt setups.
I'd guess there must be a significant difference in engine mounting which is the reason behind the gearbox mounting.
