I am having a heck of a time reinstalling the motor/transmission in my 1930 Chrysler. Its driving me crazy. Nothing seems to line up properly. It always seems to be slightly off at either the rear mounts or its the front mounting bolts. Need help/pictures/advice PLEASE

I'm not familiar with 1930 Chryslers, but you wrote "reinstalling". This leads me to believe that this engine was at one time installed in this chassis, so at one point the mounting points did line up. I would check if you perhaps mistakenly switched the mounts from right to left or front to back or have them installed upside down or backwards.

If they are like my 1931 Dodge Brothers mounts, the rear mounts can go in two ways. One way will set the engine slightly forward and the other way will mount the engine slightly rearward. The front mount only goes in one way. You could possibly have the rear mounts in backwards. Maybe you have switched them from their proper sides.
