Replacing the mounts is easy and straight forward. Re-aligning the engine is the hard part. You need to be within three thousands on a solid coupling and ten on a flexible coupling. It is virtualy impossible to just mark the threads and replace as even a qurater of a turn will effect the allignment. It took me several hours of tedious work to do mine after a rebuid but that was from scratch. If you are careful you can realign it in about an hour if you move the adjustments on the mounts minimally.
