Spitfire Engine Mount replacement in a Spit...

I have a broken engine mount in my 79 Spitfire, and I am going to be replacing both front mounts tonight...It looks fairly easy...I am assuming that I just put a floor juck under the engine and jack it up a bit to get the weight off the mounts, and swap them out? Any tips or tricks that anyone has?

Thanks!

Mike
