Default 2 litre pinto engine mount position?

I would like to get these mounts fitted to the chassis but I am not yet ready or able to try the engine in position. If anyone has successfully fitted a 2 litre pinto I would be grateful for the measurements as to where they are fixed.
Thanks, Vince

Best idea is to fit engine and box for sump clearance etc and then suss out placement of mounting plates.
I have my engine/gearbox placed at 2ins forward off the top rear rail closest to gearbox and this gives clearance for rev light switch and clutch arm.
I will try to upload the pics I took.

Use landrover rubber mounts,much stronger and cheaper, Saturn do them .

The book mounts are for a 2 litre pinto. The book mounts can only fit in one place on the chassis rails.

When I did mine for my 1800 pinto, I attached the mounts to the engine then lowered it into position. I found that with the holes in the original position on the mounts wouldn't sit in the right place on the rails. I ended up plugging the old holes and redrilling them to get everything in the right place. If you want I can get you some pics and dimensions, but personally I would wait until you fit the engine and tack them up in situ.
