I had the same problem with my '66 after re-installing the engine. I found
that there was a small difference in the motor mounts between left & right.
After changing them it works much better.
It is a very small difference but noticeable. I did this at Ross's shop a
few years back & was told there is no difference in the motor mounts. If I
remember correctly there is only one part #. I would check your motor mounts
for a difference & take it from there.
