My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
re position yours if necessary....sometimes they line out fine.

In my 1987 5.0 swap truck, with a new T5Z front shift/rear socket trans from Modern Driveline, I used my original Ranger 2.0 5spd crossmember. I used aluminum to "back" the holes and filled them with weld, ground it all smooth, and then drilled new holes where I needed them to be. It all bolts in like factory.
