    got the motor trucking along, those home made permenant lift point brackets i made worked like a charm. they will stay with the engine.

    all bolted down, CW mounts worked perfectly.
    apparently the clearance for the TQ converter to the crank openning (where the converter nipples inside the crank) that tolerance is so perfect that the layer of paint i had put on was hosing me up and i had to pull it back out. I sanded the paint off and then added some anti-sieze.

    all dropped in now

    question...........

    my transmission double hump rear mount........
    can this thing be put on backwards?

    reason i ask is that the way it is now its choking off my rear transmission pan bolts badly.

    the two bolts from my trans rubber mount **ALL THE WAY TO THE REAR"" of my cross member slotted holes.

    DO i just pry bar the cross member towards the rear some?
    Ill get a pic if needed.

    It can go in backwards. I can't remember correct orientation, but the bigger hump goes passenger side I believe.
