Default Cant align motor mounts to subframe

Hey guys Iím putting back my engine inside my Subaru. I canít align my motor mounts to subframe. Saw it was a common issue on the forum. I jacked up the back of the tranny, used pry bar, disconnected pitch stop but still no success.

Any advise? Thanks

I have never heard of this as a "Common Problem" As every motor install i have done never has an issue sitting in the subaframe.

2 questions:
Are these pictures with the motor mated to the transmission all the way? Looks as though the input shaft has not popped into the pilot bearing on the flywheel

If so, Are you sure you did not install the motor mounts on the wrong side? They are side specific

Did you jack up the back of the tranny (drive shaft end) or the front (clutch end)?

If it's the back, set it back down and turn the trans mount nuts on a few turns and jack up the front.

Looks backwards to me. I've made that mistake more times than I'd like to admit.
