Thanks for everyone's comments. This morning I removed the bolts from the dog bones (2) and tried to rock the engine forward by hand. It moved maybe 1/2 inch and stopped. Do you think the engine mounts are restricting the movement? Do they have to be loosened? I would think no matter what tool was used, the mounts would limit the amount of forward movement. I may end up taking the car to the dealership as the thought of having my arms between an engine set to spring back into place and the firewall, while tugging on sparkplugs, seems to be more than a bit risky.
take that dog bone out, and put the car in reverse hold the brake and
<BR>>> give it a little gas, have an assistant put a block of wood
behind the <BR>>> engine so it doesnt go back to its original
spot<BR>><BR>> Oh God, don't do that. Remove the dog bones, put bolt
back in mount and <BR>> use pry bar or use ratchet strap.<BR>><BR>>
