Turns out I had the fan strap cranked a little too tight. I was all set to shim the alt, and when I began by loosening the strap bolt, the fan freed up. I guess it doesn't take too much to distort the fan housing! The bolt is just snugged now 15 ft lbs and no issues.

Talk about humbling experiences. I had lowered my engine with the crane onto the wood frame sitting on my floor jack. My other jack is under the transmission leveling things out. So I realized, rather than just take the trans jack out and jack up the car for the engine install, I can use the crane to lift the car onto jackstands. Brilliant, right? I took two eye bolts I had around and put them through the engine mount holes and proceeded to lift the car. It was only about 6 inches high when all hell broke loose. I realized what I was really doing was removing the rubber insert from the mount.
Kills me because I'm stalled now. I have no means to get this bushing back in the mount, and new mounts are not only $$, but worse they are on the opposite coast at Pelican.

Yes, live and learn. Had I placed a large flat washer under the mount, it would not have happened. I spent an afternoon trying to find a shop that would attempt to press it back in to no avail. I'm now overnighting two Wevo engine mounts (with the black bushings).

I looked at my trans mounts and I don't see any cracks, plus the 930 mount is different than the 911s... the 911s use the exact motor mount two-bolt flange, whereas the 930 has a nonservicable pressed in deal.
I did have some perceptible engine rock when I accelerated and had my hand on the shifter. Although it wasn't something I was going to address at this time, these mounts may tighten that up.
