lift plate, Not me !!
I've seen alot of bad threads on aluminum manifolds . I have the lift bar with the crank to adjust the tilt, the only way to go , I shortened one lifter. I had problems with the chains interfering with the cowl top I also have one of the lift bars with multiple hoist holes they used in the Ford factory for installing engines. I have a box full of various factory lift rings, different sizes and shapes. The Ford factory bar was hard to use on the assembly line to get a 428 into a mustang The guys used to leave a big scratch on the firewall !!
