[DML] Re: Replacing Motor & Manual Tranny Mounts

Tom - It is very easy to jack the engine up to change the motor 
mounts.  You place a 2 X 4 under the oil pan at the forward edge, long 
enough to go from from one side to the other, and use a floor jack to 
raise it up.  You can actually raise the engine up nearly three inches 
before you start running into things like the exhaust crossover pipe 
to the underbody.  For a mount change, you won't need to go nearly 
that far.  Remember to remove the long bolts before you start raising 
the engine, and keep track of the ground strap.  The bolts are 
actually more like threaded rods, with nuts on each end.  For 
transmission mount changes, you simply have to support the weight of 
the transmission.  The mounts disengage, and the halves can be removed 
from the transmission and the frame with the transmission supported in 
position.  Feel free to email me if you have any additional questions.

hoist to replace these without actually pulling the engine?  Can 
someone point me to an article or posting?
