Now that the rebuild work is all done, I'm working in getting the engine back into place.

After much use of select vocabulary and hours of alternating between standing on my head and rolling around under the truck, I've managed to get the transmission bolted back to the VG30E

Where I'm now struggling is getting the engine mounts and exhaust pipes to line up. I thought I had the one engine mount lined up but the screws don't seem to want to grab the threads. The exhaust manifold to pipe connection seems like it ought to flex into place, but I can't seem to flex it the right direction.

Anyone have any tips or tricks on how to get these two things ironed out?

Also, everyone always suggests using 'good fuel' for break in. How have others gone about removing the old fuel before starting things up?
