Post 1980 T/A Small Block Chevy

Hey this is my first time to post so if I stumble a little I am sorry. I have a 1980 T/A and when I got it there was a Big old 400 Pontiac under the hood. I built a 350 4-bolt and sliped it in the T/A but I think I may have the wrong engine pedistals because the power plant sits in about 1inch off center to the passenger side. If you can help I would be thankfull.

as long as the engine aint tilted dont sweat it. I'd be willin to bet that if you put the pont mill back in that it would also sit off center. mfgs did this to clear the steering column and gearboxes. also your u-joints will keep your power straight to the rearend

TA80 thats normal, I've had a '71 455, a '77 400, and a bandit addition 1980 4.9 turbo, its perfectly normal don't worry, just watchout for rust behind those rubbers, T/A's are bad for rust right behind the wheels, desighn flaw, yes, but otherwise those cars are great.
