[Land-speed] Another Dumb Question from you know who...

I am in the process of fabricating an adapter plate to change from one 
block bell housing pattern to another. yeah, I could have bough tone but 
the price was $695 bucks so I am making it myself.  The question, 
however, is about mid engine support plates.  The metal plate I am using 
is wide enough touse as a mid motor plate, but what's the experience out 
there regards the efficacy of such a thing?  If I use a mid mounting 
plate, should I use the trans mount? I use a large AOD for a trans so 
there would be a lot of weight cantilevered back there if I don't.  And 
I don't use a  front mount plate either although that could be done.

So, comments on the use of a mid plate?
