The bottom / transmission mount busted, causing the motor to swing forward and push the belt against the radiator. 3/4 of the belt's been stripped off. I need to know the best way to push the engine back into place so that the mount can be replaced.
Do you
have the same problem?

You will first need to secure the vehicle on jack stands so it does not move, then you will need a floor jack with a block of what on top of the floor jack under the oil pan of the engine. You will not need to jack the engine up very high just enough to release the pressure from the other mounts so you can freely move it. Then move it back into place
