    mount removal in progress!!! pic

    well im deep into mount replacement ==going top front route so far no issues got two of the mount to block bolts out not even tight about to jack up car and motor for the thru bolt. upper and lower tubes and i/c are pretty dirty /brown gummy i know how to get those clean but wondering what to clean the s/c top and rotor area???? pic included.once you get the accy bracket and ic tube out of the way the s/c engine aint so intimidating!! having fun taking my time lots of breaks working well.. changing water pump as well for insurance..dont have p/s pully puller so im bummed about not trashing that stupid bracket may still do it though..

    main question:: how to clean up s/c top and visible rotor area safely????

    motor raised all bolts to frame off mount wont just slide out of course so will i need to remove bracket thru bolt and separate before removing ? maybe raise motor more?

    got it had to remove lower tube support bracket two pieces classic failure..

    The oil residue is normal and leaving it on the rotors is what I would suggest. No need to make extra work for yourself.

    You may have to rmove the plenum.

    Not sure if you'll get enough lift on motor before hitting cowl/firewall.
