Re: How to jack up diesel to replace motor mount?
Go to a tool rental place and rent a "Portapower". This is a hydraulic power system with plenty of ends that will do almost any job from straightening bent metal (my davits) to lifting an engine by slipping the duck bill attachment underneath and lifting 1/4" to about 3". Don't forget to place some wood under the trany and on the hull if you have room, to spread the load.
There is usually the right tool for any job; you just have to know that it exists.
