Hi-
I looked through a lot of the previous posts but couldn’t find anything specific about orientation for this particular mount. There’s some great information about removing the old one.....
I believe the center hole should be orientated so that it’s offset slightly lower in the center - like this :

Is that correct ?
Thank you!

Well....I hope it’s the right orientation. It’s in !
All I can say is “god bless the forum”...and I send much thanks to rockiemosley
I followed his lead and bought a puller (3 jaw 6” from Harbor freight tools $16) and a steel end cap for a 1 1/2” pipe - outside diameter matches that of the tran support bearing. I smoothed the steel cap off a bit (see photo), drilled a hole per rockiemosley’s instructions and pushed the old bearing out with the puller. Very simple.
thanks Rockiemosley! You saved me a lot of time and effort and it worked so well - I thought it was going to be a long day but it went very smoothly.
All the best
