    Transmission is tight, I'll look into the cradle braces this evening. I do need to get the engine bay stiffening plate. I almost did buy one a few months back but I got busy and forgot.

    Which side of the back plate did you put the Teflon washer on? Its supposed to go on the starter side and i think I had comparable problems when I once accidentally put it on the crank side.
