99SAAB9-3 Why in the writeup for the motor mounts is the rear hydro mount removed? The is no poly replacement for that is there?

NahumCC I'll be honest. I haven't re-aligned my shifter yet since installing my GS engine and trans mount. It's on my to do list since it'll get done when I do the clutch.

Rudedog Thanks. I'm sure I will. I am more concerned about the shifter alignment thing. I've never done that before on ANY car. I'm hoping Tweek can help me with that one.

The thing that causes the problem is the bloody little locating stub. Just becomes a pain in the ass getting it in because of the where the frame is and the leading edge of the mount gets snagged on it. You'll see what I mean when you do it.

NahumCC Make sure you have that bolt of the stock engine mount lined up perfect while unbolting it. Can make for a nightmare and stripped threads if you don't. Also getting the mount in and out once its all unbolted seemed like a PITA to me.

Is there a write up for that procedure that you are aware?

Are there any tips other than loosening the tranny mount and using a hydraulic jack with a piece of wood to take the weight of the engine when installing??
yeah you should center ur shift linkage.

Should hopefully be a good resource.
