Engine Mount Problem

Arnold:
Yes you'll need to remove the radiator and the entire bracket from the block
to make it easier. I'd suggest you pull the motor or at least have it
hoisted up a bit for protection. Try and avoid homemade rigging here. It's
a tight fit with your wrists from the rear of the car. Please be very
careful the block doesn't drop down on your wrists and hands.

Is there something I'm missing when attempting to get access to the
rear engine mounts? The two on the transmission are easy. Now I need to
remove the two on the back. I can't figure our how to get my hand in there,
much less my wrench. I'm assuming I need to remove something first, maybe
the radiator?
