Transfer case cross member issue

I have an 85 CJ7 six cylinder, T176, T300. I discovered that the transfer case has been sitting on the cross member. It's actually has worn a hole in the side cover. I have replaced the transmission mount but I can't see what else could be there to hold up the transfer case. Any thoughts here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
M. Wagner

There is only one mount for the trans and tcase, it's right between the two.

All the extra holes are for the different variants available for the drive train.

In my research I found for sale what is referred to as a T300 isolation bushing (2 required). I've gone through the M.R. 252 and M.R. 255 manuals but so far I can't find any reference to them. I can repair the hold in the side plate easy enough by welding it up but unless I figure out how to keep the transfer case from sitting on the cross member the issue will just return. Could the cross member be bent? I do have a split in the floor board between the seats from something having struck the floor from beneath. The bolts holding up the cross member are in the end of the slots closest to the center of the cross member. Hoping to get her back on t he road today...
