It should be supported from under for safety sake, if that one mount lets go then the engine falls out, and that one mount is not built to support a load that way or a load that heavy.

I am attempting to maneuver the trans back into place. Coming to resistance ater the rear mount slipped into place.

Advice on how to proceed? Hoping I wont damage the disk by causing the shaft to hang on it.

Update:
Built a hoist a-frame to help me have a greater range of motion. Using the floor jack to rotate the trans and the hoist to fine tune things I was able to slide things into place.

Just wanted to say thanks for the guide Smaay! Just finished swapping out my clutch/flywheel tonight, took a few weekends.

A few things I learned, that might help others, or if I did it wrong, correction would be nice.

- Getting the driver side axle nut off took forever. I eventually heated it up with a torch for 4-5 minutes and then hit it with an impact driver and it came off.
- I could not figure out how to pull the driver side axle out, but eventually I used this solution, and it worked with a few tugs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ5JSWu6mTE
- Getting the passenger side axle took another couple hours and eventually I just put one of the bolts back in about 7/8 of the way in and hammered the bolt, (destroying it so had to go buy another one) till there was enough room for me to get a screwdriver in and pry it loose.
- I used the ARP 203-2802 bolts that were recommended, and they seem to be working, I torqued them to 70 ft-lbs w/ the fastener assembly lubricant under the head and blue loctite on the threads.
- To tighten the flywheel bolts, I had someone stand on the other side and hold a breaker bar on the crank pulley bolt to keep the flywheel from turning.
- Getting the transmission on took awhile because the first time I tried to eyeball the clutch on and apparently I suck at it, and just didn't get it right so bought one of the alignment tools and the transmission slid back on just fine the next time.
- Had a little scare getting it started because it took awhile for the engine to start, but turning it over for about a minute, it eventually started up fine.
