1967 G10 Motor Mount

Post by ac95 on Wed May 13, 2015 7:28 pm

Attempted to swap out motor mounts on my 67 G10. 3 of the boots were accessible but the 4th boot was blocked by the engine mount/bracket. My patience was shirt today so I reassembled it all back together. Anyone have any tips/experience with swapping out the motor mounts? I have a feeling I overlooked something simple.

Yes. The bolt I had the issue with is the one on the bottom of the posted pic. The center bolt goes thru the crossmember bracket. The two in the top sit outside of the bracket. So those are easy to get to. The bottom one is closest to the oil pan.

Simple enough. I felt that(not having any prior experience doing this) that I could potentially bend or bind something by doing this. Thanks for the input Donivan65.

sometimes its hard to get that bottom bolt to line up in a new mount,,,,you could also throw a board or pipe across the seats or on jack stands and hang the engine by a
chain and take the 4 crossmember bolts off and lower it down to do the mounts,,,,its easier to move the crossmember around to line up that bottom bolt than to move the engine around to get those bolts in without crossthreading them,,,,

And when you jack the engine, you may have to drain the radiator first and remove the hoses if you need more than an inch or so....if you have a shop with a lift, there is a floor jack with a special U-shaped saddle that fits under the front pulley to raise the engine with....GM used to provide this to dealers as a dealer tool.

I have always told everyone that has ever worked forme - & as i do also=== -== Leave every bolt loose - get all bolts started in the threads - Then get them all lightly tightened down -then GO back & get them all Tight!! Prevents cross threaded & stripped threads. cheers
