Talk about humbling experiences. I had lowered my engine with the crane onto the wood frame sitting on my floor jack. My other jack is under the transmission leveling things out. So I realized, rather than just take the trans jack out and jack up the car for the engine install, I can use the crane to lift the car onto jackstands. Brilliant, right? I took two eye bolts I had around and put them through the engine mount holes and proceeded to lift the car. It was only about 6 inches high when all hell broke loose. I realized what I was really doing was removing the rubber insert from the mount.
Kills me because I'm stalled now. I have no means to get this bushing back in the mount, and new mounts are not only $$, but worse they are on the opposite coast at Pelican.
