Gen 1 & Mustang con. motor mounts

OK, I need some help with a 5.0 swap. I have a 1992 5.0 Mustang convertible donor car for my swap, it is going into a 1987 extended cab Ranger. Everything has been going good till I got to the motor mounts. I have read that the convertible mounts will work but when I put them in the factory cross member holes the motor sits too far forward and the holes are too close together. I swapped them from left to right but it doesn't help. Is there a trick and if somebody has pictures in a Gen. 1 Ranger using these mounts it would help.
If I can not use convertible mounts then I have been looking at the L&L mounts but I really don't want solid mounts. If there is a better mount then let me know.
I will be using a set of long tube Kaufmann headers for the swap and if I can make it fit I want to use a T56 transmission. I have the EFI wired and all the suspension done. I just need to finish the hydro boost to complete the brakes be system.
Anyway I would like to keep moving along with this project so I need some experienced help. Thanks for any help I can get
