One thing too is that it can be a real wrassilin match to pull some engines with the trans attached so undo the bell housing bolts and slide the engine forward a bit and then lift it out..usually the way I do it..

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

Thanks for the info.
I'll have to get one of this load levelers.

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..
One of these is quite helpful..

Powerbuilt 2 ton
A friend of mine has a Powerbuilt 2 ton engine hoist for sale like the one attached.
I think they sell for $200 to $250 new & I could probably buy for $100.
Does anyone you know if this would be sufficient to lift the original engine out of my Buick?
The engine reportedly weighs 800 lbs and the transmission weighs 400 lbs more.
