A more straightforward alternative would be to compute an isomorphous
difference map with MR phases. The peaks in this map should give you compatible
heavy atom sites. To align these with your SOLVE solution you could use this
web server:


Use the SOLVE solution as the "Reference model", and the peaks from the
isomorphous difference/MR phases map as the "Other model". To be safe I'd use
more peaks from the difference map than there are heavy atoms in the SOLVE
model. The web server will tell you which peaks match the atoms in the SOLVE
model. You will also get the rotation matrix and translation vector that leads
to the matches. The search is exhaustive so you might get more than one
solution. The solutions are sorted by the number of sites matched.
If you don't get solutions increase the "Match tolerance" (I'd probably change
it to 3 A from the start).
