I didn,t think to tell you to extend the boom all the way out and pull the carb off,run a chain from the back of one head across to the front of the other head so you can get the hook as close to the manifold as possible.I also have a set of old stock rims that I put on the front instead of tires.Gets that front end down low but I don't have to worry about knocking it off of jack stands.Old six lug rims are everywhere just be sure to get the late model rims so they clear the caliper on the front disks,just look on the back the ones you want don't taper down to the center hub.That will make it allot easier to get the engine and trans back in.Good luck on your project Dave and have fun doing it.
