Engine lifting tip

Not exactly on topic but I have a trick that helps, I use a set of 13" rims without tyres on the front hubs, makes the car sit heaps lower so you don't have to lift so far plus they make it easy to turn the steering to center the car for fitting the motor
Hot Tip: DON'T run over you foot with bare rims, it hurts a whole lot more than with a tyre!!!!

What can I use to lift a engine

Years back there was a plan in Hotrod magazine on how to build a cherry picker. I still have it and has built one. Cost me cents using an old 10 ton jack and heavy duty square tubing. Still using it after all these years. Email me your address and I will send you a copy of the plan.

Shadetree,

I tried to email you through your profile but got an error because you selected not to receive emails.

Could you send me the plans you have?

Thank You,

Dane

It is easy to do let your fingers do the walking. I own a tow company and we have people call all the time needing help taking out or putting back in there engines. We only charge 35 dollars to do this. I dont know if this helps or not just an idea ?
