Now I don't really mind if an engine sits not quite level in a chassis, IF it was designed to do so. However I have a question, and it's easy if we assume the engine was meant to be level with the frame.
Suppose I remove an engine, and then re-install it. If it were level in the chassis before I took it out, could it go back in "off-of-level"?
Reason I ask, is my clutch fork is hitting the floor/tunnel. I did install a new tranny mount, and it is slightly taller than the old one. However, the new one meets the dimensional spec of the old one. I assume the old one had softened and collapsed a bit.
I had also removed and re-installed the engine during a time where the old mount had partially collapsed.
So, as my engine drops in with conventional mounts (traditional...picture a rear wheel drive pick-up installation) and frame perches, could it have wound up a little low on one side, and a little high on the other, or is this impossible as the angled mounts will find their proper location?
Seems to me I went thorugh this on another vehicle once before, and the engine always dropped in and landed in the same spot....or did it? Memory isn't great....sigh...
