Re: shaft alignment

Adjusting a heavier engine side ways can be easier if you weld up a movable C clamp from short bits of angle iron that hangs onto the engine bed and straddles the mount. Half inch nuts welded to the top face take the bolts that will push the base (one at a time) into position .It may take a keen eye on the strut cutlass before starting moving the engine around
