No Problem.

You can do the "X" in lots of different spots .

It will go faster if you have 2 people .One on the smart end & one on the dumb end.

I am 99% sure that Motor mounts are universal ,bolting them up is a BIG PITA.

If I remember right a Ball swivel socket is a life saver in this job.
Also some good magnets , to retrieve the nuts & bolts .

Here's a couple of trix. . .

If you take some paper & put it over the bolt then stick it in the socket it will hold it in places & still let you get your socket back.

If your swivel socket is loose a little electrical tape will hold it from flopping around.

It most likely easiest to drop the bolt down thru & nut it from underneath. this way there are no clearance issues with the "cup " on the Motor side of the mount.

Please let me know what you find out on the misalignment part.


Good Luck
