Thumbs up 123 engine mount tools

I used the 3/8 inch rig on all engine mount bolts except the inboard driver's side. Note the "wobble" extension. Remove the engine shocks, radiator shroud clips, and center (8mm mount bolt) before raising the engine. I use the 1/4 inch rig to remove the inboard driver's side bolt.
I bought the set of hex drivers (red container) ar harbor freight for less than $5.
The Snap-On stuff was a bit higher priced, eh?

I will also take this oppertunity to tell you about one of your members. I work at his shop.
Yesterday he came to my house at the crack of dawn and please note that this is the dead of winter ( January 15th ).
We replaced his engine mounts and shocks ( about one and a half hours including the cleaning ), passenger side window regulator ( one hour ), turbo charger to exuast flange gasket
( one and a half hours ), and hand priming pump on the MFI pump
( 15 minutes ).
He beats us if we don't do his bidding, BUT..... he never beats his wife. Claims it only makes her meaner.
