Engine mount bolts

Postby seneca2e » Wed Aug 29, 2012 6:46 pm

At some point I'm sure the engine will have to come out(not soon I hope but you never know). I see you can get to the front engine mount bolts thru the access panel where the oil screen is but how you get on the back two from the bottom looks impossible. Who's done it and how did you do it :-)?? The top nuts of all 4 engine mount bolts are more or less accessible but the bottom bolt heads(in mine the bolts are upside down) are the challenge-especially those aft two I'm asking about. Maybe they're retained in there somehow? Though I doubt it :-) I'm sure I can figure this out when the time comes but if you already know I'm all ears lol.

THE bolts are held up threw with retainers on the head side. very easy to to remove engine..just need a long extension and 9/16 socket..they all unbolt very easy...

Awesome thanks Tom!! I figured they must have been something like that because getting a wrench on the bottom ones looked darn near impossible!!
