Sp2 engine install assistance

Hi there, got a conundrum. I have a paper copy of the sp-1, however Im installing the engine in my sp-2, and with everything up on the table with a birds eye view things don't look like they are pulling together properly and I would like to see the sp-2 install section. The data on-line that I viewed before and had difficulty downloading seems to be getting (excuse me) cockblocked by GO-DADDY. Domain expired or something.Stupid of me to assume it would always be waiting for me. Anybody have the sp2 section 7& 14 I believe? Thanks just want to know its as right as it can be.

I kinda remember there being a difference in the engine mount locations, but that might just be on the race bike.

sp1 has screw in collars on the left like sp2 swinger. Its the same just different. Have my engine un-weighted and just saw a gap where I don't think I should. I restarted and things seemed right but then I started wondering and had a conversation with myself I probable shouldn't have. So I would like to confirm. I want the engine sittin in the chassis like it should. Don't want it to be a thought in the future, or notice some weird sprocket wear my first day out. Even though I read somewhere some racer like Nicky or someone like to ride with one of the eng. mount bolts out to feel the vibes

They removed one of the engine mount bolts on Colin's bike to give the chassis more flex.
