Definitely NOT installed properly.
1) Consult service manual and read all steps for engine installation, especially mounting bolt tightening sequence (important) and torque settings.
2) Compare and check clearance for all engine mount spacers. Some are different length than others.
3) If the mounting bolt tightening sequence not observed (or incorrect length spacers positioned), it may cause warping of the frame.
It's been awhile since I swapped my engine out, but if all steps are done, it will go smoothly.
Also a good thing to put anti-corrosion or anti-seize on the threads. Mine were a bit "squeaky" on removal.
