In theory you should be able to have both exact alignment and fairly even weight distribution. The weight distribution wont be exactly even since different corners of the engine weigh different amounts. I think you need to keep working on the adjustment. First get the coupler in the correct location with the mounts closest to the coupling, then align it with the mounts farthest away from the coupling.
