I was replacing the starter on my blazer today when I noticed that the
bolt on the passenger side motor mount was backed out almost all the
way. I got after it with a wrench to try and tighten it up but of
course the bushing isn't aligned properly and the bolt won't thread.
It appears that the bolt is going in too high i.e. the front of the
engine needs to drop. I've never screwed around with a motor mount
before and so I don't know the best way to manipulate the engine into a
position where that bushing inside the mount will line up with the
bracket. I'm planning to try putting a jack under the back of the
block somehow but I figured I might as well try to see if anybody has
any better ideas or tips that could make this process less painful. Am
I going to have to unbolt the tranny? Is it even feasible to try to
line up a motor mount without having the engine on a hoist? Any advice
is much appreciated.
