Re: Replacing engine mounts

We replaced our mounts in much the same way as Brian did. It was much easier than we had imagined (feared). We used a 2 x 4 to lever the engine up to replace the front mounts. Our method for lifting the rear of the engine was not as sophisticated as Brian's. We used a 2 x 4 and a piece of rope! One end of the 2 x 4 was short on one side of the rope fall and long on the other, making a lever and giving me some mechanical advantage. I lifted one end of the 2 x 4 while Rhonda slid in each mount. Only took a few seconds each.
