Trans Mounts

Does anyone have picture of where the transmission mount is on a manual trans? I started to get some clutch chatter when I engage first and sometimes second (this just started the other day, haven't driven the car much because I'm working on the odo), I think, my bad engine mount, but I'd rather replace the transmission mounts at the same if they're shot as well.

... in my experience chatter in gear leads to broken springs in the pressure plate... err... the cause of the chatter is the springs...

I'm not sure if there is something wrong with the transmission itself, but I've read that some chatter can occur from worn mounts so I'd rather exhaust all of the cheaper possibilities first.

Clutch chatter is also caused by uneven wear on the pressure plate or flywheel, and or broken fingers on the diaphram.

I know that, I'm just trying to exhaust the cheaper options before delving in to any trans work.
