Drivers side motor mount

In a thread last week, I mentioned installing power steering for my 67. The first step that I want to do is install the power steering pump adjusting bracket that goes over the drivers side motor mount. In order to do this, I have to remove the upper left and lower center bolt of the solid rubber engine mount. Can I remove the long vertical bolt and nut, then jack the engine up enough to access these two bolts? The engine I think would pivit on the passenger side motor mounts long bolt. I might have to remove the fan in order to keep the blades from hitting the shroud, but that's not hard.

In that other thread it was stated I could use the Z28 type bracket, but I don't want to change to an 8 inch harmonic balancer to use the Z28 bracket since I already have everything needed for this conversion to power steering using the 327/L48 brackets.

Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Re: Drivers side motor mount

I kind of doubt you can rotate the engine enough to gain access to the lower center bolt.
The trans mount might bind also. I think you'd be better off to raise the front of the engine.
Watch the distributor. Might have to pull it for clearance. You DO NOT have to run an 8"
balancer with the Z28 style brackets. They work fine with the smaller balancer.

I've done it many times just use flex sockets and make sure you have a 2x4 under the oil pan just in case it drops on you.. undo the shroud instead of the fan much easier :P
