You can’t reposition the motor, so raising it a bit is your only real option. If it’s the lathe Steve showed there you must have had to remove the feet to bolt it down anyway. I think I would just shim it up as little as is necessary to raise it off the table. You could use wood scraps, though hard rubber would be nice to absorb some of the vibration, I suppose. The only other solution would be to excavate a depression in your bench to accommodate the motor. If you don’t intend to use that bench area for anything else, that might do it.
