motor mount bolts squeaking
Newbie here who decided to tackle a long tube header and off road x pipe (bbk ceramic l/t) install on my own, in the garage, on jack stands. I'm almost out of the woods but have a problem. Drivers side header hung and everything reattached. Passengers side header hung.
Problem: It appears the motor mount bracket and bolts did not line up correctly upon reinstall b/c I'm having a heck of a time screwing them in. 1st one went in fine. 2nd one developed a nasty squeak half way in and became extremely hard to screw all the way in, I got it in just barely but only b/c it was the middle bolt and I was able to get enough torque on it. The other two bolts in the back are going in the same way as bolt No. 2, however given their position I will not be able to deliver the amount of torque necessary to drive all the way in (well maybe if I spend 4 hours on each bolt).
I don't know if I stripped the bolts and if taking the 2 out and trying to realign the mount plate would be possible (if stripped) or recommend.
Am I able to run with just 2 bolts securing passenger side?
Other than the top starter bolt (which I threw in the fking river) this is the most trouble I'm having.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
