Tips for engine alignment

Can anyone share a few tips on aligning an engine? We have to install a new engine (as the previous owner seemed to have water ingestion). We've managed to free up the engine mountings whilst the engine is out of the boat but getting it all aligned again looks a bit daunting.

Also I don't understand the stern engine mounts (those that bolt to the engine block as opposed to the transmission), at the bottom of the mount there appears to be a lock nut but this sticks out below the line of the actual clamp which looks like it'll be a problem as there is no recess in the boat for this nut).

Any tips appreciated.

Boat's a 2005 XStar with Indmar 350 MCX

Thanks
