Shouldn't be that hard. The right side mount has a nut on loosely on the bolt. Getting the two bolts on the left just hasn't been successful. The trans is attached. Not much wiggle room. Tips? Using a hoist and my taking time.

James,
Slotting the mounts is a common way to make this job easier.

Remove the 3 bolts fastening the engine mount bracket to the chassis on the left. Bolt the engine mount to the bracket and to the engine plate. Get everything lined up and bolt the bracket to the chassis.

Implied but not stated.. Have the DS mount and bracket attached (loosely) to the frame, attach the PS to the engine (as stated) lower engine in, attach DS mount to front engine plate (loosely), work PS bracket into place and bolt in, tighten all nuts and bolts, you're in.

This is kind of timely. Just today I struggled for about an hour with that driver’s side mount. I took it off and did the notch trick (thanks, Rut) and it slid right in. I did not cut it all the way through to the top, though, I just elongated the hole. I did not want to comprimise the integrity of the mount.
