    Where to lift the front of the engine from

    I'm trying to find the easiest way to lift the front of the motor about 1/2 inch to swap the mount without unbolting the rear and re aligning everything. Remember I have an 05 so I have the large mess and not just an oil tube.

    Just take the bolts out,have the other motor mount ready and lift it by hand from under the solid mount on the motor......thats what i did and it worked fine..no need for lifts,chains ect ect ect..its a pretty easy deal...If not,grab a buddy and have him lift and you slide the mount under..

    Are you trying to kill me or is it really that light? Never would have guessed it was that easy. I was thinking up all sorts of complicated shit to do.
