Have you measured the distance from the frame bolt holes to the trans mount holes?
You should also be able to look up in the service manual the four corner spots to measure from, drop a plumb bob down on the concrete floor, mark where the point hits the concrete floor, then measure the marks....
What really stood out on my Truck was the fan sat in the fan shroud crooked..........

Got the tank self etched primed and painted satin black. Also,did my first weatherpak connection on my fuel hat. Apparently e85 requires a "liquid proof" seal. Pretty cool connector,even though the crimpers were $32.

I wouldn’t sweat it. Sometimes I just like to go into the garage, have a beer, and look at it.

Current state of my garage. Pretty roomy with no Mustang in there. Been at a shop the past two weeks for the fuel system upgrade. It's done,but I came down with Covid again so probably wont be back til the weekend. Then,I'm relocating battery to trunk and put the intake etc back on. New e85 tune from Steve and we'll be back in business.

Need some help. Pretty sure the two connectors in both pics are just grounds correct? But what is the round electrical connector for? It's looking like I wont have enough room on my solenoid to hook up the other connections. Is there a better way to do this? I'll state right now electrical is NOT my forte.
