Bishop,

I know everyone says that, but it still freaks me out a little...thinking about stresses involved...and weight...it'll be bolted at the trans mounts and on the motor mount I'm not replacing...so the engine just lifts up on the motor mount side I've loosened...when jacking from the oil pan...while held at three other points.

I guess I'm not either 'getting' that part, or don't trust that the engine can move a few inches and the trans mounts and guibo 'play along' and take the flexing.

Thanks for your effort, Bishop...it really does sound straightforward...though I know the pass side mount seems to be much tougher than on the left side.

Doug
