Tedmonson - I did raise the front of the engine only about 1-2 inches and was not able to clear the frame, I didn't want to raise it too much because of the manifold. I am not using a trans jack but I am able raise the front and rear of the trans independantly.
The solution my be to continue to raise the engine, until it completely clears the motor mounts, then push the engine toward the right side to create a clearance for the transmission. Not sure how much stress the manifold will take in this case.
