Pretty easy to build. I presume a type 1? Do you have instruction booklet?

Not sure about the type. It's going into a vw IRS pan. No I do not have the book.

It's not a tranny mount that you buy for type I pan ... After you cut off the 2 vw horns you weld tabs onto the tortion tube that hang the stock corvair trans mount. I have pictures somewhere I will look for.

That's the easy part to make . The tough parts are at the outer ends of the corvair axles to hook up to the spring plates and links back to the transaxle. So many I've junked over the years.

I'm not using the corvair axels, I'm using the vw cv joints and the clarks corvair adapter plates for it. Just corvair engine and trams. It's for a sand rail

ROD , I have that corvair rear end from that frame we got ,but might use that for something else. I like the idea of cv joints then swing axels .

The plate in the top pic is what you make. It attached to torsion bar tube. Trouble with all of this is the pics are from swingaxle type 1 pan. The IRS pan is different because of CV joints.

In the above pic the 2 tabs that stick up are what you weld to your existing tortion tube . Then a stock or even shortened corvair trans mount bolts to those 2 tabs.

I just texted you 4 pics ... sorry I'm having computer issues in office.
