yes that is the one ,I have the 2 bolts to the engine, the nut off of the stud, the 2 on top of the mount towards the fender and the 2 that at almost underneath the mount. I can move the mount with my hand but how do I get it off of the stud? I have the motor jacked up a bit to take the pressure off. now if it was a harley I would know how to do it.

pull out the big center bolt, you have to move the two peices independantly to get it out.

I also found that I had to jack the engine a bit further up to get clearence. A sidenote: I found with my brother'* car that the weldnuts on the inside of the frame rail that hold the mount to it can braek off, resulting in a mount that is impossible to remove with the stud inplace in the engine. We yanked the stud out, and then we could get the motor-side half of the mount out. Replaced the stud with an appropriate grade 8 bolt. In the future, the mount will be a breeze to remove because we would only need to remove the three bolts holding the mount ot the engine and the mount'* center bolt.

You took the center bolt out from between the two mount halves, correct? The only way I found to do it without removing the stud (doing so ruins the threads) was remove the part of the mount on the frame rail first. Then slide the other half off the stud.

Maybe you already tried that, but I'm just trying to help.
