Default Supporting the engine for timing belt job

Good afternoon, my car is approaching 120k and I have all parts to start TB job (except of the tools, which I am going to rent). I don't have a hoist to support the engine from above while unbolting the engine support. I am wondering if jacking up the engine little bit by oil pan would suffice? I've replaced torn engine supports this way, using a piece of 2x6 under oil pan to evenly spread load. Thank you.

That's fine, as long as you are properly supporting and balancing the engine on the pan. a 2x6 laid flat works perfect.

There's no need to mess with the motor mount. Just get a new tensioner stud and remove the old one to replace the tensioner. Easier, faster, safer. This method is mentioned in most all of the write-ups.
