Remove engine mount bolt and tilt the engine with a jack.

18MM nut from underneath. I like to set the engine back down on an impact socket sandwiched between mount and cradle.

The side that You can't get out, You lift that side. So both. Haha, they are pretty tricky to remove in the car.

The danger and fun of "might as well!"

This thread reminds me of my younger days.

My Dad and I had a Model A roadster that was overheating. So we pulled the radiator and had it rodded out. Since the hood and radiator were gone anyway, we thought we "might as well" pull the head and see what the block looked like.
Once we saw the cooling passages we thought we "might as well" pull the motor and boil out the block.
While the motor was out, we thought we "might as well" re-do the rotating assy, ended up boring it .060.
We ended up saying "might as well" until we had done a frame-off rebuild of the whole car.
Took months, a huge job, but brought me and my Dad together and ended up teaching me about cars forever.

frosst421, "Might as well" might get you in a whole lot deeper than you thought you'd ever go, but you'll have some great fun doing it. Enjoy brother.

What Justbob said........

Just get straight to the drinking, yelling, and cursing. A few more curse words another good jerk and it'll pop off. Grind off that tab and it'll be easier the next time.
True story.....
