How to jack up diesel to replace motor mount?

3841 Views 15 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  djodenda
Hello. I have a Volvo Penta 2002 and need to replace the rear motor mount. Any idea how I can jack it up? There is very little room under the transmission and some room but not much up front but don't know if i can effectively jack up the rear from the front? The other idea I had was to use a come along or pulley from the boom to lift it? Any ideas would be helpful. I need a super small jack I guess (short)? Thanks.

You will have to free both rear mounts. The wee nuts are likely to be rusted in there and may be reluctant to move. A big chunk of 4"x4" (or similar) could be wedged in there to lift the motor at the back.

You will need to disconnect the gearbox first, of course.
