    I would like to change my motor mounts from stock to Poly's on my 1990 Blazer. My question is HOW ???? Can I just jack up the motor with a floor jack or do I need to pull it from the top ? and how hard is it ? It looks pretty straight forward but...


    thanks

    easy as it looks, take out the main bolt(s), then jack up the motor, un bolt the lowers, and bolt in the new ones, lower it back in place na dput the main bolts back in

    OK, How would you jack the motor up without damaging it ? I guess what I'm asking is where do you place the floor jack ?

    Place a block of wood under the oil pan to disperse the weight, and jack carefully.
