do new motor & tranny mounts affect motor height/fan shroud alignment?

the 4 new mounts all seem a little taller - read a post that the rubber mounts from Gordons are bigger and introduce issues (bilge oil pan drain not lining up, etc?

my oil pan drain lines up perfectly after installing the new mounts from gordons (did both engine and tranny mounts).

Gordon's motor mounts work fine. Amphicar had trouble getting the engine to line up reliably with the 1 inch opening on many cars. That's why they changed to the 2 inch bilge drain plug. Too bad they didn't have a nice screw type plug like the 1" version. Their 2" version is a piece of junk and sometimes leaks. The 2" plug that I designed works perfectly without any modification to the car. I've used one for about 14 years now with no problem, and you can remove and install the plug by hand, without any tools.

Both of my cars are titled 1967 but one was clearly an earlier assembly than the other.
