Hello Spridgets,

   put the mounts on the engine before it goes into the engine
       bay. ..

       here's what "the book" says.... READ IT ALL BEFORE DOING

       without the transmission/engine only

       to remove the engine.....remove the filter bowl and the starter
       motor from the right hand rear of the cylinder block. Take the
       weight of the gearbox on a suitable jack and remove the set
       screws securing the gearbox to the engine crankcase

       remove the left-hand front engine mounting complete with its
       bracket and the right-hand front engine mounting RUBBER
       together with the front exhaust down pipe support bracket from
       its fixing on the gearbox bell housing.

       take the weight of the assembly with suitable lifting equipment
       and remove the engine from the vehicle..

       refit the engine by reversing the sequence of operations
       detailed for removal.

       support the engine assembly with suitable lifting equipment and
       remove both the left- and right-hand mounting rubber securing
       nuts and mounting rubber bracket-to-body securing set screws.
       release the exhaust down pipe manifold clamp and remove the
       front down pipe strap from the support bracket. lift the engine
       approximately 3/4", ensuring that the fan assembly will not
       foul the radiator fan cowling. Swing the engine to the LEFT as
       far as possible and remove the right-hand rubber mounting
       together with its body bracket. the left-hand rubber mounting
       and bracket assembly can now be removed.

       when refitting, the right-hand front rubber mounting and
       bracket should be positioned FIRST. Both mounting rubbers and
       brackets should be fitted BEFORE any set screws or nuts are


Best regards,
 Bill                          mailto:pythias@pacifier.com
