front engine mount replacement - '88 r-model ?


Recommended Posts

What's the best way to support/lift the engine to replace the front engine mounts on an '88 RD688SX with an E6-350?  I am concerned about supporting/lifting the engine by placing a hydraulic jack with cushioning under the oil pan;  any suggestions?   Do I have to lift the engine from the top with a hoist?  That would be more difficult.   Trans/rear mounts where relatively simpler comparatively speaking.

This post reminds me, on our '88 r model last fall I noticed a weird sound when turning a sharp corner. After investigation it turned out both front mount bolts were gone! The fan was hitting the shroud when the engine would move around. I stuck a couple of grade 5 bolts in it to get by and haven't given it much thought until now.
