Motor is in everything is great so far, I am trying to align the engine,,, the question is if I crank down on the rear mount as far as I can its out of alngment,,,, if I loosen it up its ok, I saw a spring in the rear mount so my question is does the rear have to be cranked down, and if so can I shim the rear of the motor up?

The rear bolts must be torqued to spec. I don't have my manual here but if you need it I will be glad to look it up. After the back is torqued you align the front by turning the nuts under the motor mounts. Turn the nuts down lower the front and the coupler will pivot up and turn the nuts up if you need to lower the coupler. You can feel which way it needs to go when you slide in the tool. If you feel it hit on the top then the coupler needs to go down. It's not very hard once you get the hang of it.

Who did you order it from? I got all of mine thru aeroquip, they were one of our sponsors when we had the race car so I got it pretty cheap. Ok still not cheap but not what they want retail for it. If you don't mind what was is it gonna cost???
