It may be an American car. In the service manual, there
are two models that are "cutlasses". Olds Cutlass and
Olds Cutlass Supreme. If he is seeing a front engine mount
that is in the way of the belt, it's pretty much got to be an N-body.
As you know, the W body with a 3100 doesn't use a front
engine mount up high like the N-bodies.
I've never seen an N-body Cutlass here in Canada, but
I don't doubt that there may be one sold in the States. They
often have had some different models....or rather, we have
had some different models here in Canada?
Yes, you will need to jack up the engine/trans. Remove all four
of the bolts and get that small aluminum piece that ties the engine
bracket to the engine mount right out of the way. Put your jack,
(with a block of wood) under the oil pan and support the
engine while you remove that mount. You should have enough
room to get the belt out.
