Default Trouble fitting new front hydromount to '95 Camry 4 cyl

Have got new hydromount in position, but there is a strong spring in the
mount which is causing the new mount to sit too high for the upper
bracket support bolts to line-up with threaded holes in block.
What's the go here? I tried raising the engine, but the car raises with
it. Or do I have to disconnect the side mount to raise the engine?

Appreciate any advice here :-)

Tim

I was curious about hydromounts, and found something interesting at one
manufacturer's web site:

"As well as affording quiet and fast operation, the new Vacuum Switchable
Hydromount has been engineered to avoid a loss of damping during sudden
impact loads - such as with pot holes and sleeping policemen, for example."

Yes,..:-) Vacuum controlled engine-mounts [hydromounts] are fitted to
later Toyotas and are a refinement.

I gotta hand it to you, Joe. Sometimes you come up with some real jewels of
good information.



This isn't one of those times.

The humor is good information. Sort of like another classic: The LL Bean
catalog once described a sleeping bag compression sack as being made from
"bomb-proof material". Someone wanted to know if customers were paying
attention.
