Ok, so it's easy to change engine frame mounts.
Do I lift the engine by the oil pan, balancer or do I use the front lip of the engine where the oil pan meets the block by using 2x4's?
Any takers???

I just put a 2x6 under the oil pan and jack it up. Make sure the board covers the pan from side to side.

There was a discussion about this awhile ago, probably in Engine section , my mechanic pushed up on the balancer with a rod thru the frame hole right below it. Others said that can ruin the seal and cause other harm, now just yesterday I was reading my new chassis service manual that I just got and it showed the photo and gave directions for doing that exact thing.
Im guessing that using the edges of the pan as mentioned is just as easy but Chev even describes how to use the balancer. Do a search on 'lifting engine' or 'changing mounts' and you will read lots of opinions on the subject.
good luck
