so i have a mustang 2 1975, i had the motor v8 ,302 rebuilt, i took it to the shop personally, and took it out my self, i received her back yesterday and while i was installing the motor the driver side lines up perfectly, but the passenger side is off like 2 inches, it looks like it needs to go up and be pulled towards the fender but if i do that than the other side will be off, im stumbled, note these are the original mounts and motor, any suggestions

yes put your mounts in VERY loose just a couple threads on the bolts til there all in you may even have to use a hoist to pull on the motor to help align the bolt holes, when all are in then tighten, I've ran into this problem on alot of older cars any make
