to be honest I did it from the Mazda mount on the front of the motor.. I'ld recommend two people if you do it this way after doing it all by myself yesturday. I just put some pressure on the motor.. and lifted it a little myself.. then it's a matter of making sure when you pull it off the input shaft that you pulling it evenly.. I was having troubles at first because the bottom seperated more than the top did once I figured that out i corrected it with some lanky muscle power and she slipped right off. Cranked up the cherry picker and carefully moved the motor over the chassis and set her down I'll probably set it in the car the same way but with another person to control the cherry picker and just use muscle power to line the motor up with the input shaft.
