8 ft ceiling does not leave you much room to work with. You may want to attach your hoist to a piece of material that you are planning to use as the main beam and see how much room you have between it and your work. ie, can you really lift a motor high enough to clear the radiator support. I think your hoist hook will be 6 ft above the floor, at best.

Good luck.
