yes to some degree trans is on a jack at it’s front, engine is on the hoist but not all the time it’s on the engine mounts,some times on the engine mount bracket without the mount biscuits but it’s so close the locator pins are in past there bevel about 1/2” or so to go. With 2of the TC studs in gauged in the flex plate and two just on the edge I think I can’t see them at the top of the bell

i marked the hole for the TC drain plug on the flex plate and used the matching one on the new flex plate so?

The TC has studs, right, not bolts?

I'll be honest, I prefer to mount the engine & bring the trans to it.

It's easier (for me) to move around & line up.

pic of when I put the engine in the truck the first time note the chain rig on the hoist bar my micky mouse way to get it out of the van the distributor was hitting on the bottom of that bar the bolt ripped the fire wall insulation out of the underside of the dash,the bar was level to the ground.
you can just make out the R&P at the drop down in the oil pan sump

If you have doubts about whether the TC fits the flex plate, can you try test fitting just the TC t the FP? I mean, pull the TC off the trans and hold it up against the flex plate just to see if the studs would line up with the holes in the FP, and have the TC nose fitting into the pilot bearing. At least you can verify that they DO fit.

Iím still judging that as this is my first auto trans was able to push them together less than a quarter inch to pull with bolts,
i was with my grandson most of the day way more important than an old truck

Without a doubt in re grand kids.

You should be able to line up the studs on the TC, push the block/trans together.

If you draw them tight & square, there should still be a bit fore/aft movement between the TC/Flex plate & the nuts draw the TC forward to the flex.
