Transmission mounting plate203 viewsThe photo is an edited version of one posted on another forum by Chris Haynes and the full view is also on page 568 of Palmer's book. The bike is a mid-40s Knuckle and the trans plate's two front mounting holes are visible.
This would seem to be the type of plate used on 1937-47 Knuckleheads, 1937-48 BT Flatheads and 1948-57 Panheads. The 1936 Knuckle used a plate of similar size and similar overall shape but it had raised sections at each end instead of being solid all the way across and apparently it was only used for that one model year. There's a photo of a 36 Knuckle plate on page 66 of Palmer's.

For Panheads, my H-D parts catalogs indicate that four different trans plates were used:
1. #47698-36 (old #2804-36) for 1948-57.
2 and 3. There may have been two plates used in the period 1958-64. I imagine the front left mounting hole on both of them was further out than on the earlier plates but there must have been some difference between the two of them because my 58-68 catalog lists #47698-58A which should mean there was also a #47698-58.
4. #47698-65 for 1965.
