Hmm, did you replace the trans with the correct one? Maybe bolt the engine down first, then the transmission?


Did you pull the engine/transmission as a unit or just loosen everything and drop the trans? You don't say exactly what and why it does not line up. You might try to loosen the mounts on the engine enough to get them to drop into the frame mount.
