Extend the engine mount plates that bolt to the block, then refit to mounts
life,s better with a beddy, or 2 , :), or 3

Take the plates off
Cut them in half.
Then bolt the top half to motor.
Bottom half to rubber mount.
Then jack the motor up to where you want it and weld a piece in between the 2 halves.
