•Remove the transmission mount nuts. Loosen the mount bolt and pivot the transmission side mount out of the way.
•Raise the chain lifter to remove all slack from the chain.
•Check that the engine is completely free of vacuum hoses, fuel and coolant hoses, and electrical wiring.
•Slowly raise the engine approximately 6 in. Check once again that all hoses and wires have been disconnected from the engine.
•Raise the engine all the way and remove it from the car.

Engine Removed!

Now that the Engine is removed, you will need to remove the engine mount. Use a plasma or an acetylene cutter to cut the engine mount. Clean the engine bay first before welding a new engine mount. Then place mounts on motor and position the engine in the bay. Align the engine well and weld the new motor mount securely.

Note: Ask for professional help on engine mount installation and alignment.
