General Maintenance & Repairs - Need help after engine install

I recently pulled my engine and trans out the bottom and put them back in and can't seem to get the transmission lined up to the cross member. It looks like it needs to come over 2 inches to the drivers side to be straight. Any ideas on why it's not lined up properly? Not sure if it matters but I put new poly motor mounts on.

Loosen the k member and pull the transmission where it needs to be.and tighten it all up

Tried it yesterday and it didn't do anything. What I think I need I do is flip the pass side motor mount because that sides header is higher than the drivers. I might have put the clamshell upside down when I put them on.

Yeah that makes a difference. The ear goes on top

i noticed the drivers side mound was with the tab on top so i took the pass side outta the calm shell and had to switch it. Doing motor mounts is the biggest pain in the ass...holy shit doing this sucks

I done mine out of the car... But my engine has never been in the car yet.

I did mine when the motor was out too but put one on the wrong way and now have to do it again.

Haha. Yeah when I was putting the mounts on I wasn't sure so I got online and searched... Ls1engines.com has some decent write ups

Fixed my problem. All I needed to do was flip that mount over and everything is lined up better. Now I can finally button everything up and get it running.
