    turn the swap slightly sideways, and drop the tranny side and lift it out, or un bolt the mount completely

    best way i have found to get the back mount out.... take bolts out of back mount, take off the transmission side mount and put a jack under the trans., lift the motor up a couple inches. you can then turn that back mount sideways and work it out between the bracket and the firewall. its kind of a bitch but its easier than the next best option which is removing the whole back bracket.

    yes what he said ^


    you dont have to do anything with the back T bracket. if you take the transmission mount off (and the lower torque mount if it has one), jack the motor up from the back of the transmission, and pull or pry the motor slightly more forward, you should be able to get the mount out. i just replaced all my mounts recently. it was a bitch but didnt really take that long, about an hour and a half.
