Progress... sort of.

I got the transmission mostly mounted up. I opted to try to get the engine into the bay without having the transmission connected, and I'm starting to think that it was a bad idea. I spent a good two hours trying to get that transmission installed, and it's still fighting me. That, and it looks like the mounts I'm using are preventing the hood from closing, which is a problem. I might be able to cut and re-weld them, which will allow me to use the transmission in the position it's in... but I don't know if that's a route I want to go yet. Somebody on the bluebird list suggested I swap out the transmission bell-housings, and I might do that. I think I tried before but it was really difficult to pop the bell-housing off. We'll see. In any event, I'm going to pull the engine back out and mount the transmission to it, one way or another.
