Getting ready to start to replace the head gaskets on my Impala. Question, are these two brackets part of a motor mount system? They appear to be connected to the front head. If I disconnect them, will the engine lurch forward towards the radiator ?

I tried to include a picture but somethings not working

Nope, the motor will actually lurch backwards by an inch or 2 no reason to worry. try and remove the one on the transmission side after most of the stuff is off, and remove the rear exhaust manifold with the head. I have done several of these things and using the double end wrench trick you can access the manifold to CAT nuts from the top. And, hit or miss some have been I want to say not metric.
