Holy crap... very detailed. Looks like I need to go back to the junkyard and try to get SVO the section of the rear mount that goes on the crossmember as well. I only got him the part that attaches to the transmission.
Hopefully I can do it without removing the crossmember. Ugh.
You should be able to remove the mount without dropping the crossmember, I did.
I don't know man...it looks like it's about 1" or more off from the automatic mount.

If you read, I was able to remove the auto mount w/o dropping the x-member too. Installing the manual mount was different. All the heater core plumbing is in the way, and I am VERY weary of removing 18 year old heater core componets, as I have personally wrecked one just by touching it. If you have the balls, you can probably remove this stuff and avoid having to drop the x-member...but it's so not worth it - dropping the x-member was a breeze and made everything work out great.
Hmm...that's odd. I wonder if the AOL site I posted belongs to Ryan, or if Ryan just got permission from the owner of the AOL site.
I may try to get my wiring completed on Saturday, with lots of pictures of course. I don't think I'll have it all together by this weekend, as I'm going to have to drop off the flywheel at Zappa's on Saturday and may not be able to pick it up until Monday.
P.S. I didn't have to drop my rear cross member to add the mount either. But I don't remember how I did it, I just remember not having to. Anyays... also, why did you remove the axles? I always just leave them connected to the hubs and pop them out of the tranny.
Worked on the car more today. Got the flywheel resurfaced, pulled the dash out, and finished my wiring. I'll post pictures sometime this week. One more day of work and I should have it all back together. I'm excited to see how much of an FE improvement this will be!
