Engine is in and trammed. Mounts are not adjustable. You have to tap engine wedges fore or aft to get it right. Old school set up but it works

That is the perfect engine for a Cracker Jack. Looks great.

This is coming along quite nicely! Good thinking about angling the gas filler line to match the back deck. One of those small details that come to mind when spending time in the "thinking chair".
