  • engine mount

    just got my zzp engine mount in the mail. i know how to put it on, but i was wondering the best way to support the engine while i make the swap? cherry picker or floor jacks? i just don't want to break anything, so help is needed! lol

    just jack it up underneath the oil pan...BUT MAKE SURE TO PUT A PIECE OF WODD BETWEEN THE PAN AND JACK, so u distribute the weight evenly and so u dont dent or possibly break anything

      Sonic, is it the front lower trans mount? if so, don't support it, it has no load on it as far as downward. if you jack the engine up at all it will be harder to get in.

        no, it's the engine mount on the passenger side, next to where the airbox is on a non-RL ion

          yeah, just get a little support on the oil pan with a jack. the pan is not sheet metal so you don't need too much if any buffer between the jack head and the pan.

            ok. i guess i'm a little more worried about the stability, not so much the support itself. the engine won't shift or roll or anything when i remove the mount?
