There are no other fittings are there that aid alignment?

It may be slightly twisted?
If I were you I would put the top mount in first and then the bottom two.
By the way the mounts on the bottom should be two countersunk screws into captive nuts in the frame... otherwise you can't fit the battery.

Rather than force it to fit and introduce stress that will probably result in it cracking later put a washer or two on the rear bolt between the tray and frame if it won't straighten easily.
