I pulled off my hood on my 67 to pull the engine. Now I am putting everything back together, I put the hood back on and it won't line up now from side to side. The passenger side is too close to the fender, more so at the back of the hood. I can only figure out how to do a front to back alignment. How do I adjust from side to side? (I looked through old posts and couldn't find anything)

The bolts that hold the hood to the hinges, control both back and forth as well as side to side movement. But if your gaps are not uniform, ie: closer up front than the back, you will need to play with your fender adjustment too. This is a tedious try and error process which I recommend not be done without a spotter and fender/hood protection if paint and/or body work is complete.
