Place jack lightly under motor to hold up, remove frame nuts, and the two 3/4 inch motor mount bolts, hopefully no spreader should be needed to replace.put a little grease on to make easier install

If needed I just put a half inch bolt and nut into a piece of pipe to push
the frame out a nudge. Set against the engine block, chamfer the edges of the mounting bolts for stress free starting

A buddy and I replaced the rear passenger side motor mount yesterday in about an hour. We had a jack under the bell housing to take weight off the mount, and tapped a piece of 2X4 just the right length between the frame and bell housing, then slid the old mount out and slid the new mount and pad in. The toughest part was breaking the old rubber pad free from the frame.

Can wedging the 2x4 against an A or AA bell housing crack it, even with body bolts loosened?

I guess you could overdo it, but with the engine lifted off the mount with the jack underneath, the frame didnít need to spread much at all. I was surprised at how easy this turned out to be. After getting the original rubber pads loose, things went well until we needed to get the bolts from the mount into the flywheel housing in - misalignment was an issue. However, a small C-clamp helped pull things into alignment and well went together smoothly.
