It does.

In my case, the steering box dictated engine height relative
to the chassis. In a left hand drive defender the Cummins engine mounted oil cooler is directly over the steering box if you are using a 6l80e and associated adapters. The angles and length of the frame side mount tubes were different side to side. I mounted the transfer case to frame mounts first and then with the engine suspended from the hoist took measurements. I made the templates out of a wooden 2x3 for test fit and then made the mounts out of 2x3 3/16 wall tubing.

If the transmission was shorter or you were doing a rhd application you could go a different route- ie the steering box clearance wouldn't dictate engine position.

Some have been emailing me asking about using a p38 box etc. Seems like a ton of trouble to go to when things fit fine if you are carefull. We intend to use this same combination over and over so I labled and kept my templates.

Well next time you are making mounts add an extra set in and I'll buy them. My setup will be the same as the one you are building now. I am happy to pay the the engineering work you have already done. I am just not that savvy and don't have the equipment to perform those feats of engineering.
