Hello Jonmac,
Thanks for your email. On the Stag, the engine appears level. The offset is
taken up by the engine plate. I dont have my parts book with me but was
that engine plate repurposed from a Triumph 2000, 2.5 as there are some
oddities on it which don't match up with the bell housing on the Stag.
Regards, Sujit
