After some grinding of the k frame, finally able to lower the engine on to the K frame. Next will be prepping the trans and converter mating to the engine.

I cannot recall if the engine mount is supposed to be sitting on the K frame. If I lower the engine all the way, the bolts won't go in. Right now looks like about 5/16" of a gap. The PS is slightly more. Can anyone tell me if this is normal or I did something wrong?

Yes the mount should be laying on the frame pad.
