68 350 frame & engine mount position

Hi Guys, Im restoring a 68 coup 350 th400 (lhd) and having trouble getting my hooker extractors and engine in position. Ive taken the extractors off for now and moved the motor to where the air cleaner fits centered into the 2' cowl hood. Now the engine mounts and frame mounts dont line up approx 40-50mm.When i imported the car it was drivable and the motor was as far back against the firewall with approx 1/2 inch clearance from the dizzy electronic std size mallory. The hooker extractors didnt foul on anything and the back pipe has been knocked in so it wold not hit the lock nut on the underside of the steering box. It had a munchie 4 spd. Ive replaced the gearbox mount to a th400 and now with the motor in its new position the gearbox mount is to far forward off the crossmember to bolt up. Has anybody had these problems. Ive emailed hooker now holley with the part no of the extractors and they dont know. My car was an x drag car. Any help would be gratefull been nearly 3 years restoring and dying to drive it. Thanks Dave

Thanks for the advice looked at your rebuild looks great, did you line up your air cleaner to the cowl hood?

No I didn't it just kind of get what ever air it can where it is.
My car is all show and no go. It's fast enough for me anyway.
It doesnt take much speed to get into trouble.
