I got the bolts out of the center mount, I obviously took the top motor mount out first.... took the bolt out of the fender well with the t55 and jacked the motor up and got the other pain in the neck bolt out.... then the one towards the front of the car.
How the heck do you seperate that center mount from the motor? I don't want to pry on the timing chain cover and break it. maybe I need to break out the hammer. Thought I'd ask though before I got too much more in depth


Thanks for the responses though!

You still have some bolts holding it.

now to get it out of there, I think I need the harmonic balancer off next so I can get all the timing chain covers off because it seems to be embedded in those
