We weren't quite sure how the engine would fit fore and aft, but once we had it positioned over the chassis engine mount tabs, we made a quick measurement and found that the driveshaft distance matched the length used for the crate motor that had run in this car. The height was adjusted to a 2-degree angle, rear down, so that the oil pan just cleared the ground should the bottom of the car come in contact with the track surface. For our pinion angle, we rotated the pinion up to a 2-degree angle to match the transmission output shaft angle. A slight difference in height between the ends of the driveshaft provided plenty of angle differential at the U-joints. The mounts were tightened and we were now ready to move on to the next phase of installing our Schoenfeld headers.
