If memory serves the '87 has a solid mount system that is a rubber unit that is molded inside a steel sleeve. Support the engine /tranny with a jack. Remove the chassis bolt that goes through the center of the mount and chassis ear lugs. Remove the bolts that hold the mount and it's adapter to the transmission. Use a hacksaw to cut a slot on the inside sleeve of the mount, just cut the sleeve not the mount adapter. When cut us a hammer to tap the mount out of the holder. Make sure you make a note of the proper orientation of the mount. Position a new mount insert on the adapter and use a 6-10 ton hydraulic press to drive the mount insert into the adapter. Don't try to use a hammer, you'll just bugger up the mount and have to redo it anyway. Installation is the reverse of removal. When done loosen all mount center bolts and start the engine so it will align properly. Shut it down and re-tighten the mounts.

What does it mean when female rabbits mount male rabbits?

A female rabbit will mount a male rabbit to show him that she is the dominant one out of the bunch. Hosue rabbits live in a heriarchy, they establish dominance by mounting, fight, scent marking, etc. They will mount again down the road just to reassert their dominance. If a female rabbit is mounting a male or other females it means that she is in estrus and ready to breed.

How do you change a Peugeot 106 gearbox?

fairly simple but awkward to do, means undoing the hubs and pulling out the driveshafts (after removing gearbox oil!! school boy error and you only do that the once after putting 4ltrs of oil onto garage floor!!) you have to undo the bottom engine mount as this is attached to the gearbox. Loosen, which can be really awkward and annoying, the gearbox bolts, of which i think there are four incluing one which goes through to the starter motor. Support the gearbox and slowly undo the bolts until they are out leaving the top one til last just to make it wasier to get to all the rest of the bolts once loose. remove gearbox and replace. if taking the gearbox off you might need to think about what life is left on your clutch as well as you'd rather change it now than have to repeat this job again in two months time if its near the end of its life. also make sure when tightening the gearbox bolts again that they are done to the right torgue as if not, you'l find out, surprisingly soon as i'd done 80miles of a rally and they loosened enough to let a drive shaft move over enough to let the gearbox oil come out past shaft.
