Okay, driveline in, what about angles? (long)

Okay, thanks for those who helped w/the torque converter issue. I have it in, only time will tell if it is in right. Now at what angle should the whole driveline sit at? Meaning the engine, trans, xfr case combo. I have a 304 mated to TH400, adapted to a Dana 300 (w/Novak Adaptor). It is all slightly longer thant the original 304TH400Qtrac set-up. I am using the skidplate from the Dana 300 set-up and it is dropped about 1" (4" suspension lift). Now since the xfr case is a few inches further back I need to drill some new holes in the skidplate for the transmission mount, should the output yoke be parallel to the axle yoke or pointing at it, or somewhere in between. The axle yoke seems parallel to the ground or slightly pointing up (I forgot to check for degree shims, it's someone elses abandoned project). If I set the transmission mount sit on the skidplate the angle seems kind of steep. Should I fab something to lift the mount up an inch or so? Now that I've thoroughly confused everyone, including me, any advice? TIA.
