2.2 Diesel - Need to change my engine mount.

Postby scromer » Mon May 19, 2008 1:04 pm

Hello, I just purchased my first LUV diesel truck(82), its in good shape but the engine shakes to to much. after looking,
the right side(pass side) engine mount is in bad shape. I was able to purchase one locally but when i went start changing
it, notice that i could not get to the top two bolts. So i would have to have to remove the engine bracket that is used to
connect to the engine mount. then i noticed that the "injector pump" is also connected to that engine bracket and the
injector pump goes into the timeing chain area. That's getting too too deep for me. any idea's on how to remove the "rubber part of the
engine mount(not the bracket) without taking the total engine out or the injector pump off. Please forgive me if i have used
the wrong names for some items, I'm very new to diesel engines.
thanks

this is a picture of the "bad" rubber engine mount (right side). it's not the exact one but you get the idea.
i can not get to the two nuts on top.

passerner side mount a pain in the rear but it can be done use a combination open/box wrench on the nut closest to the fender and a socket with a swivel and extensions
or take the injector LINES off as an assembly it makes for more work but a lot les cussing oops I mean personal discussions with your tools/engine mount
you will have to loosen or maybe remove bolts from the left mount so you can raise the engine enough to remove the mount

thanks, i think i'm willing to try it. Yes, this is my basic plan,
1.) unbolt both sides of the engine mounts from the frame,
2.) unbolt one side of the engine support bracket(where the mount bolts to)
3.) Try not to remove the injector pump
4.) use open / box end to remove the bolt nearest the finder well
5.) use extentions and angle socket sets to get to the bolt nearest the engine.
6.) lift engine some
7.) remove old mount
-repeat steps backward to put back together...-
thanks for the input and guidance
- I believe this is my plan for the long weekend.--
