Re: Mounting Engine without a ton of tools?
For keeping the engine aligned I would look at how the SBP jack shafts are mounted. I always had a problem with mine tilting until I went that method. It's basically an 8" plate you mount to the engine, that has a mount on the top and bottom to attach to your frame. You can easily make one your self and it will keep it aligned nicely.
