Default Trick I used for Engine Install '03

All - I am working alone on a dirt surface, and I weigh all of about a buck since I was having trouble dropping the 2.4 in I resorted to trickery. I could roughly line up the pass side middle mount bolt but couldn't easily move the engine over close enough to start the bolt, so I went to the nearest Ace hardware and got a long 12M x 1.75 threaded stock, a nut for it, and washers to step up from the size of the nut to the size of the access hole. I screwed the threaded stock into the mount through the access hole, then put the washers and nut on from the wheel well, then tightened the nut and drew the engine on that way. I installed the tranny separately. I have been using a similar method to install trannies to engines for years,
