Default Engine bushing/bolt replacement

So I'm upgrading the 1991 DS with new machined driven clutch, spring and severe duty belt and I kept looking at the engine on the cradle and it seemed, well, off. I decided its time to replace the 22 year old rubber bushings under the motor and boy was I glad I did. The bolts were just about worn through and the bushings were dry. The pics tell the story. The new bolts are 3/8 thread x 2.5" long carriage style with a 3/8" I.D. steel sleeve - 1" long, with 3/8" nylock nuts. The bushings can be purchased at any local automotive store, part number is in the picture. I had to cut off the old bolts with a cutoff wheel but now the engine/drive clutch seems perfectly aligned with the driven clutch.

Thanks, I try and contribute where I can. I may be looking to upgrade the engine in the future and have a line on a GX390 motor. How hard would it be to swap that in the CC? I just had the driven clutch machined with new spring and heavy duty belt installed. I'm assuming I can reuse the drive clutch but am unsure the additional steps to complete the swap. Any info would be great, Thanks.

Just some food for thought;

The stock carriage bolts are grade 5, most hardware store bolts are not graded.

Also the stock bushings are hard polyurethane, not soft rubber.
