Default Not quite ...

On the conical mount ...
Upper right engine attach point is 11.5 - 5.25" = 6.25" from upper right firewall bolt. Distance between bolts is 23". So a 1/8" washer under upper right firewall bolt would only be moving the upper right attach bolt forward .125 x 6.25 / 23 ~ 1/32". Well, you subtracted 1/8 and added 1/8 so perhaps 0.25 x 6.25 / 23 ~ 1/16". But is it a conical mount?
Seems you'll get more out of putting washers under the engine bolts. And probably more fiberglass work.
