Sm 465 tranny crossmber/ bushing problem

I just finished swapping out my old sm465 10 SPL in my 79 chevy truggy for a later model sm 465 with 32spl output and hydro bellhousing. I know that when doing this you have to move the crossmember further back to accomadate for the longer adapter on the back of the trans.

My problem is the trans is currently sitting about 1 1/2" above my rubber trans mounts that connect the trans adapter to the factory crossmember. Did chevy use a different style crossmember on the later model sm465's?

I don't mind building a new crossmember, but I want to make sure this is right before I stab my doubler behind it. Thanks in advance. The last picture in the thread linked below has a picture of my problem.

Yes you do need the later model W or S shaped crossmember from 85+ trucks. Those also are a one piece rubber mount so be sure to get that too.

Are the crossmembers for the auto tranny the same? I think I have the crossmember from the 1986 4x4 I parted out.
