There are two more holding the mount to the block.  You will need to take
off the timing covers.  One usually doubles as the stud for the big flat
head nut that helps hold the upper timing belt cover on.

Take the upper timing cover off and start poking around...you will see
them, they are towards the front edge of the block.  If I remember
correctly, the lower cover has to come off too....
