Balancing Engine Weight While Aligning

I just installed four new motor mounts on my Yanmar 3HM35F. After several attempts I can now get the engine and shaft aligned in a reasonable amount of time. But, I discovered that the engine and shaft will align properly but the engine weight on the mounts may not be evenly distributed.

How can I make sure the weight is properly distributed on the mounts while aligning the engine and shaft.
