Default Bolts rear motor mount to clutch housing

I can not get the bolts holding rear motor mount to clutch housing out...ordered a thin wall socket which goes on the top bolt but socket wrench won't budge it....any secret here I don't know about

I use one of those combination open end and socket type wrenches. Not much room to get a normal socket wrench in there.

You can gain leverage by putting the box-end of a combination wrench on the bolt head and another box wrench onto the open end of the first wrench. A few cuss words sometimes helps too!

Thanks...I can fit my thin-wall socket on the top bolt but there isn't enough space for the bottom bolts...These bolts have been there a long time...one place I read said use a 6" adjustable wrench on the bottom bolt....people have changed engines forever and Im surprised there isn't more written on this task...

I took a box end wrench and ground the wall down just enough that I could fit it on the bottom bolt. Taking weight off the bolt may also help.

Interesting. I was able to fit a ratchet and standard socket on mine.

I finally got top bots out with a thinwall socket, a breaker bar extend with a steel pipe. For the bottom bolt I had to cut the mounts in half with a sawzall and carbide blade....took a monster amount of torque to get them to move...now for rear float-a-mount...

I don't understand why if someone put them in, why can't they be taken out without destroying something?
