Best advice yet! Be safe, not sorry.

gmc1990rodder my 2cents would be that you would be fine the lift is rated at 4000lbs w/o being extended but most any thing rated for weight has at least 5 to 1 safety factor that isnt factored in to the o.e.m's ratings

OneMoreTime My lift is just like that..most of those are chinese just with different labels..should do it just fine..just get as close as you can to take advantage of a shorter arm setting..Only thing I may be concerned with is balancing the load..

The engine reportedly weighs 800 lbs and the transmission weighs 400 lbs more.

Thanks
The lift will lift it, depending on how far the arm is out, you have about 1200lbs you say. They have a chart with the ranges with the arm out. You have a little over 1/2 ton, how far will the arm have to be extended to get over your engine , I think you would be safe in using it, as you are just over 1/4 of what the lift can lift. Measure it then check it out on your friends lift.
