Can I leave the motor sitting overnight without a rear mount or plastic cover and no jack?

I was doing the install outside before shit hit the fan with the bolt and it's too late to get it fixed.

Can I leave the car over night with no rear mount and no jack supporting the block?

I would imagine the forces involved while hitting a pot hole on the remaining mounts would be many times greater than what they are experiencing now... probably ok...
besides you dont really have a choice anyway and it's already like that.. but I think youre ok.

i drove 7 hours, 350 miles, from Laguna Seca back home w/out a rear mount. killed the passenger mount i'd imagine, and left a couple dents in the firewall....but no permanent issues.

Does anyone know the measurements or name of the bolt? The one that goes through the front, small half of the Mount?

Guy at a bolt place told me M14 1.5 x 9.5 but that confuses me cause I was told to use a 17mm socket? Is the M# not suppose to be 17?

Fuck Bolts.
