Thanks for all the info, guys! It doesn't sound like the mount job is all that bad. Probably will be a few weeks before I can get the time. I still need to do the coupler, there'* massive clunking in the steering system while turning around in parking lots and yesterday we discovered.... drumroll..... a rusted and leaking fuel tank filler tube! I've never had so many issues in such a short period of time with one car.

As for the mpg issue.... I'm pushing her pretty hard..... not as fast or hard as I drove with the sc on... but not letter her slouch either. Of course, these things are all relative. You might say I drive like your Grandma. Whatever the reason.... she is getting better mpg with the SC off.

Take body side of motor mount out, remove the rest of the motor side mount.. replace pulley by removing bolt in the center of it..

Consider the remainder of the pulley'* while you are here. As well.. you need to do all this to get to the waterpump. at this point....it'* a good consideration.
How long would most of you think this job would take you? I have the exact same thing happen to me. I have the belt and pulley ready to be put in but haven't had time to really look at everything that needs to be done. In fact, I didn't even realise the steering pump needed to be removed. I thought I just needed to remove the stud that connects the middle of the motor mount, and the part of the motor mount that connects it to the engine bay. I figured that was about a 15 minute job, then 5 minutes to change the pulley and put the new belt on, and 15 minutes to put it back together. But now that I know the pump has to be pulled I am not sure how hard or how long I should expect.
