Motor Mount Design

Here's the layout I'm planning on using on my motor mount. It will bolt to the front surface of the motor.
So as I see it. The motor mount I have would have worked if the bolt pattern
would have been like this.
o......o like this

But after mounting the motor to the transmission, my pattern is like this:


SO I need a wider mount to accommodate the 45 degree shift in the bolt pattern.
Since the transmission adapter plate has only four attachment bolts, trying to rotate it (to adjust the motor bolt pattern) yields a 90 degree rotation. NO GOOD.
Of course we could drill new holes in the motor. However, I really do not want to do that.
The saga continues...
