After bolting it to the tranny drop it down. Probably will drop on one side or the other, probably doesn't matter which side.

It does matter because it will offset your motor by around 3/4". The mounts go behind the ears on the block. In other words, the mount goes more toward the back to push the motor more toward the front.

It will look like this, only shifted more forward. This is a big block 383 in a '57 Plymouth chassis. Poly 'A' 301-303-313-318 have more of a bracket offset forward, cylinder more rearward.
