Are you asking?
Do you need to know how the tranny is supported?
At the end of trans. there is a rounded cylinder, that fits into a "cradled" cross member. That cross member is bolted to the under body spanning to both sides of the driveshaft tunnel.
Now, are you still following?
A picture is worth a thousand words, & I've not got my "disc" to show the picture of my explanation. Hopefully someone will chime in that has theirs handy.
I do hope this helps.
And very nice progress with the Spider. Hope you're cruising this Spring!
