That's how I do them but you can leave the steering and exhaust bolted up with no problem.Mystic1221 said:I just replaced mine last week. Theres really not much to it. I removed my starter, and X-pipe, and unhooked my steering shaft. I also had to remove the strut tower brace for clearance. Then lifted my motor with a floorjack and a peice of wood after removing the bolt on each side that connects the mount to the chasis. Then with the motor lifted there are 4 bolts that hold the mount to the motor. Then work the mounts out.
Haven't seen one on a Mustang yet, but on other cars it's easy. If it's an auto, with the hood up and a helper standing to the side, hold the brakes and put it in gear. As you apply a little bit of gas, you helper will see the engine lift up. In one case I helped on, the engine would bang against the hood (when it was down of course).bierbelly said:Seems like quite a few folks with the older SN's are having this problem. Are there any clues that you have a problem, other than that cited above, that the engine was sitting wrong in the compartment? Drivability issues?
