If you are mating the engine and transmission using a jack, I suggest using a screw-type jack. A hydraulic jack may sink imperceptibly and complicate the alignment process. I have a cheapo HF trans jack that works very well for this. item#61232
The suggestion to carefully measure the gap between the two components at the bellhousing is simple and better than the bubble level method some fool suggested earlier. "Measure-the-Gap" method ensures 360 degree alignment - not just vertical.
Important to note that this O.P. and others have had alignment/mating difficulties with the two components on the floor. Can you imagine doing this with the engine already in the car ? On jack stands ! Up at a crazy angle. What is the technique to get easy mating then?
