    This one really has me stumped☠️ I pulled my engine and trans to reseal my engine and I put the engine and trans back in and it went fine all the motor mounts lined up good and went in easy. Then I look at my water pump and everything on that side is pretty much touching my frame I have no clue how this happened?? Anyone know what’s wrong? Thanks -Noah Rieke

    Me too. It isn't touching. The pulleys ride over the pump. Its tight as it should be but looks normal.

    Don't over stress the issue. We all make mistakes from time to time. The one time I thought my engine was too far over to the diver side, was because I had the water pump pulleys on wrong and they stuck out maybe 1/8 in too far. Engine didn't slide down. Obviously your pulleys aren't on, but just take your time. You'll be fine.
