    Hi all!
    I got a 72' Riviera that I want to use to break in my new Tri-Shield engine.
    It is not a good looking car and I am kind of embracing that!
    I will focus on the safety/drive-ability side of things.
    One thing that I would love some advice on....
    When I pulled the old motor, I noticed that the passenger side motor mount was welded to the frame.
    It looks like they couldn't get the holes to line up.
    I didn't take any measurements on the drive-line to see if it was straight before I took it apart, and never drove it since I bought it with a blown motor, but my fear is that it could be an indication of more serious issues?
    Any suggestions on how to proceed?
    Cut it off and get a new one bolted down like factory? Bolt it back together and let-er buck?

    Frame may be tweaked a bit

    That was kind of my fear.
    I think I might just run with it since it was apparently working.
