Whenever I do this - I nearly always make a hamfisted effort at getting it done.
Most things in life benefit from a methodical approach, so what is it that I do wrong with this task. First bear in mind I don't have access to a full garage workshop of tools or a hydraulic ramp. In fact, it is a driveway, with a single trolley jack, 2 axle stands and a whole reasonable heap of normal hand tools.
The bit I tend to struggle with is getting the top knuckle (engine mount) to arrive in roughly the right place. It generally tends to get jammed up somewhere near to the steering rod bolts. It is I think that I can't somehow get the engine to come far enough forward to get the top engine mount to pop up into the right place.
What do people do?
Someone suggested bolting the far end of the gearbox support in place first and then rotating the engine up into place - any good?
Is there a way to add the top mount after the engine is pretty much in place. It is difficult getting those 2 long bolts in either side of the top mount, if you did it that way.
Should I just man-up and shove it in there in the same old push, pull, swear, bash manner?
Anyone got and cheeky little tips that make this (sometimes frustrating) process any easier?
