lifting an engine

on my MGA, would lifting from the rocker cover studs be a good idea or will the struds rip out and force me to rebuild because of het little steel shavings?

where can I hoist the engine from?

Find a place on the front and rear of the head to lift it.

Couple of very good MGA info sites:

The Chicagoland MG Club site also has some photo tech sessions. There's an MGA engine installation one (I'm assuming you want to put it back in again after you've pulled it ...) at:
