Several of you guys have suggested this and it makes perfect sense.  
While I was standing in front of the car contemplating the angles of the 
studs, I thought perhaps I should pull the drivers side at the frame 
just to make things simpler.

I've pulled a lot of engines while working in my dad's shop.  Most 
engines in the old days just had one bolt through each mount.  Pull that 
bolt and the mounts raise straight up.  The bolts hold the engines in 
place but the weight is carried by direct contact.

I've seen photos of the mounts supporting my current V8, because lots of 
people have had these mounts fail and have replaced them with something 
else, but I didn't get a good feel for how these actually come apart.  I 
don't think they are as simple as they should be because of the time 
that it takes to change them.
