Headman Header set won't fit right

Hi again Guys,
When I was ordering these Headman Headers for my 304 V8 I thought they would fit without too much hardship, But the Bank on the right seems close to correct
But the left Bank seem too high and nearly rubbing the chassis support .I am is bearing in mind that I need clearance for engine movement.
I understand that the fitting will need some jigging to get right but the mountings for the Block seem too high on one side and they the mounts are in the same holes on the chassis carriers as when I took the engine out. I suppose my question is do I need to change the Engine-Mountings as well as the headers? Is there a difference between auto and Manual transmission?
Did anyone have similar problems when fitting these or other type headers?

Thanks again Guys Maurice .
