i may have messed up jacking up transmission

I was in process of removing driveshaft so i can drop tank. I jacked up the transmission (manual) about an inch and remove the brace. I changed the mounts while i had it out. The tranmission apparently shifted on the jack and now it is touching the top of tunnel and shifted towards passenger about 5 degrees. How do i fix this?

I cannot attach a pic so hopefully this works.

Check your motor mounts to see if they've been damaged when jacking up the trans. You should loosen them up too, shouldn't have to take them out though.

How on earth have you done that? is it still on the jack in the photo?

I would take the gearbox cross member off, drop the transmission down. Attach x-member to transmission, then jack it all back up by the transmission. *should* all fall into place.
