On my TR3 racer we rigged up some long bolts, big flat washers,
and some old valve springs to make a mount that allowed some
vertical movement in response to twists. light, simple,easily
disassembled when needed.

Yup, we've done that, too, and it works.
Yet, we'd like to take a step further.
Greg Solow interjects some thoughtful observations that may be incorporated
into the design, eventually..
Keep the comments and interest coming....we have about 8 responses in about
hours. There must be an interest.
There seems to be an opportunity to relieve some stresses from the
gearbox....stresses that have been known to crack bellhousings. Stresses
might not be very good for the gearbox internals, either. Time to think
outside the GEARBOX, as it were.

A short length of "angle iron" with a half inch hole in it fastened under
tailshaft boss on each side, with the flat face butted up against the end of
the mount, to take the lateral loads.
This is pretty much SOP, easy to do, and works great.
