Thank you for your reply, but the problem seems to be the support bolt is in the opposite way from the diagram.

sounds like some one put it in it seized or you can get it out? what is the issue?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
There is some sort of a plate that is in front of the bolt. Don't know what this plate is and rather I have to try to remove it - lift the engine- what?
