Requesting pictures of Transmission Equipment

Hi guys, I know this isn't exactly the place but I needed some pictures of the transmission cross member on a 84-87 Turbo Coupe with the Borg Warner 5-speed. I got the motor and transmission from a friend and I'm swapping them into my 74 Pinto Wagon but I'm confused on if the one bolt coming out of the transmission mount is really all that bolts into the cross member, feel like there's something I'm missing. 
Any help appreciated, thanks!

Thanks! Strange system as most other cross members take two bolts.

You can remove the aluminum adapter that the trans mount bolts to, and then use a fox mustang style mount that uses the two bolts that you're used to seeing.

The single bolt style mount is specific to the Tbird/Cougar platform. The factory mounts were fluid filled for vibration damping.
