Engine Support lift

Made this from old upper mount and crossbar

All I did was drill a hole in each and add a long bolt, holding it up right now

Plus--you removed the rubber so a nut could go on the bolt (you didn't tap the hole in the mount). Got it.

When do you need this function?

Transmission removal is the most common, also replacing lower engine mounts/subframe dampers.
