Check and reposition right and left engine support assemblies as required. Adjust drive train position, if required, for the following conditions:

  • Drive shaft distress:
  • Any front end structural damage (after repair).
  • Support Assembly replacement.

2. Loosen the right engine support assembly vertical fasteners.

3. Loosen the left engine support assembly vertical bolts.

5. Tighten right engine support assembly vertical bolts to 61 N.m (45 ft. lbs.). and tighten left engine support assembly bolts to 61 N.m (45 ft. lbs.).
