Make sure you have the correct mount on the correct side. The engine, as Dana said, should locate slightly to the passenger side. When installing the torque converter, it is not fully seated until you feel two distinct thumps as it enters the tranny. Make sure you put a quart of tranny fluid into the TC before mounting it.

You put tranny lube in the TC because you do not want it dry when starting the first time. Dry starts hurt seals. Be sure to plug the output shaft hole in the trans before tilting it down. The fluid will pour out if it has fluid in it. Correct engine/trans location after the rear mount is in it's proper place is around 2-3 inches from firewall to distributor cap.
