Default Re: Replacing Engine/Trans.Mounts

Personally, I think the long stud makes it easier. Raise the tranny. Get the mount on the frame. Put the nut on a few threads. Lower the tranny just enough to allow you to pull the mount up and get the upper bolts in a few threads. Then lower the tranny the rest of the way. The mount will guide it into place. Torque everything down. If the stud's too short, you have to get the tranny placed exactly to get the upper bolts in.

...
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
