Motor mounts ,the good the bad and the ugly

The GOOD -its what drives you in getting the project going ,a nice pleasant ideling diesel under the hood .After hearing the motor rattle in its cage for so long I couldnt let it go on much longer.The BAD ,the driver side was actually ok after I was able to wiggle a #6 torx on the nut,the passengers was not so pleasant .After looking things over I finally realized I had to get the bolt that held the motor to the mount off first while a jack rested under the motor ,then jack the motor off the mount to get at the mount bolts.A nice flat piece of metal rests over top of the mount bolts and wrangling around that piece wasnt working .Now I KNOW!! THE UGLY - a car with many diesel miles and an engine bay that has never seen engine cleaner equals a very big mess.I highly recommend 3 cans for that clean up,I had at my disposal a half can of old engine clean and a garden hose,next time its a trip to the car wash with coins in hand.
