Possible stupid question of the day ...

Can you carefully replace the engine mounts one at a time and get them in the same position as the old one ... and then not have to re-align the engine/shaft? I'm not familiar with how difficult a shaft alignment job is ... and I guess that's my second question ... how difficult is the alignment process?

A couple of my mounts are pretty rusted due to the PO ignoring a leaking raw water pump and I'm thinking of taking them out one at a time for clean-up / repainting and new bolts
