Ultimately, if your chassis is rigid enough, you can solid mount it. The chassis you had with a liberty trans were likely chassis cars? If so, that is why they were rigid mounted in addition to the case being made more rigid than the egg shell that the GM hydromatics are made of. I use a polly mount on my chassis cars using hydromatic trans to keep any stress of the case that will shorten the life of the trans. I have seen racers cantilever there entire trans off the bell housing using NO mount what so ever. I think they are foolish, but if one idiot does it and doesn't get killed, others think it is the way to go sometimes. I like to stick with (conventional) engineering whenever possible.
