Bolting up RSD transmission to inner primary to engine

I'm trying to bolt up the inner primary case to the engine and it will bolt up but then the transmission won't bolt up and it sits up about a 1" inch high !
I can bolt up the transmission to the inner case but then the bolt holes are soo far off from bolting up !
Here's a few pics
This is my first time trying to build just a heads up maybe it's simple ?
The engine is flush on the mounts

Who,s the frame manufacturer?. Is motor definitely flat on it,s mounts? All 4 bolts are in? Tight?

Does trany sit up level, equally 1" away from each hole?
And if you end up with the trany in this position- does the rear drive clear?

Maximum metal works frame , motor is deff flat and hand tight can't move the engine . The tranny can sit level when on the mounts but then the bolt holes for the under case don't match up !
I tried even putting washers on the front of the engine , rear and even all around the granny just to see if I can get the mount holes right but doesn't work ?
The frame looks good maybe ill double check everything this week

someone forgot to add or subtract an inch when making the frame. You've got to figure out if the front mount is low, rear mount is high or tranny mount is low. Motor appears to be sitting right in the cradle, does the rear exhaust bolt clear the frame post so you can bolt up the exhaust?

I was under impression maximum metal works were ok frames.

I guess you would have to chose which is lesser evil- to exchange the frame or to redo the mounts.

they where the best in the bussines , i don't understand this
the problem with exchanging the frame is maximum is done..doors closed.. hopefully you got it from a supplier eg; mid usa and have them exchange it and let them hold the bag..

Something is definitely off here. Not sure what though because the spacing under the trans looks very uniform. With the transmission in this position how does the tranny shaft line up with you axle slots? In the one photo in almost looks as if the inner primary is indexing the tranny up.... maybe the holes in the inner primary are indexed wrong....

Just A thought.
Check to make sure that your primary plate is not resting on the lower frame rail.

Hey Pop, is I recall correctly your frame has trany sitting higher than stock position and you just run the primary belt drive without( or with special) motor plate, correct.?

May be he could try to set it up similarly?

yeah your right. i raised it 3" and back 3". fabbed my tranny plate and trimmed up the motor plate for the belt drive... if buddy here, has the skills and takes his time he can make this work out using his existing belt and components
for me i hate hearing theses story's. he a first time builder and this shit can discourage his from completing the build
