    The motor mount-mounts that were welded on my new frame are off by about 3/8". As a result the engine/tranny angle slightly to the drivers side rear and driveshafts do not line up perfectly straight. Will this horizontel offset cause problems?

    Thanks

    Steel, I can't think that would create any big issues. The fan shroud is adjustable, and 3/8" should not affect the driveshafts. So this is the way your frame was built? Or a PO job?

    Thanks Degnol.
    This is a new Matkins Level I frame. I have had a few fit issues like this, otherwise it is a pretty sold set up.
