It is, but for some reason the motor wouldn't raise enough after the spacer was put in. Kept lifting the front up. So much easier with both mounts loose. When i took loose the drivers side, i unbolted the bracket with it. When i get done with this trick or treat stuff with the kids, I'm ready to rock and roll

maybe it was being lifted up by the fan blade lifting on the fan shroud?

No, the shroud isn't even bolted on. I tool the radiator drop brackets off. I think my jack was acting up. I even unbolted the trans to skid bolts. I also realized when my guy put the new motor in, he reversed the crossbolt. Unbolted the bracket for nothing.

See now thats cheating. I made the dumbest mistake yet while working on my jeep and accidentally loosened both mounts at the same time. Without a cherrypicker it was quite the task to get it to line back up. Had to use a comealong in the rafters of my garage and ended up denting my radiator. It was a bad day

Got the windstar intake finished up and installed.




Might need to do some trimming on the hood. Will know after I drive it for a bit, but at least its drivable now.

Also, took off my milk jugs and found I brought the beach home with me.

Gorilla glue worked for about a year and half for me. Then they all broke at the same time so I went to the stealership.
