Can someone please tell me if the rear tranny mount pictured below is orientated with the A or B side facing the front of the car.?
My apologies if this has been posted twice. I did not receive any responses and count not find it on the list of posted questions.
thanks

To be honest I don't remember, but if you hold it up to the gear box bolt it will become evident which way it has to be mounted.

thx. will look against tranny later today. am I better off putting the mount on the tranny before I install it, assuming I can get it compressed enough to do the bolt ?

This is the mount on my TF gearbox. The tail piece is at the top of the photo. Yes, install the mount, rubbers, and fork onto the gearbox before installing it into the car.

Make sure that the welds in the corners of the bracket are good. Chamfer all corners of the rubber where they meet the inside corners of the bracket so that the rubber sits flush to the bottom of the bracket. The cup of the cupped washer faces away from the bracket so that its edges don't contact it.
