scrap intake manifold...

Anyone in the MD/DC metro area happen to have a scrap 351W intake manifold I can use for a short while to help move my engine around and get it mounted into the car?

It does not have to be operational or pretty. I have a 1984 block. I do not want to use the intake manifold I am going to use in the final build as it is a velcity stack EFI setup.

Just need it as an anchor point to put a block plate to lift the engine with my crane while I mount the tranny and get the parts mounted on the chassis.

Thanks,

Dave

adjustable lift bar.

I have a couple of the adjustable slings. I use the 4 chains to either exhaust or intake, or front and rear of heads and like the adjustable feature , turn the crank to tilt the engine front to back. That makes it a lot easier.I had to cut one down to make it shorter for smaller engines and not ding up the firewall. I never trusted the plates that bolt to the carb studs they just don't look strong enough to me. I have had loose studs on aluminum manifolds . I don't want to have a hand under neath trying to get a motor mount bolt started using those small studs.

Never used one of those before. They do not seem to be to expensive.

Looks like the bolt goes through the end of the chain and into the ends of the heads. What bolts should I use? Grade 8 I suppose right?

I was worried that the bolts would snap under the weight although I do not plan to add the intake manifold until AFTER the engine and tranny are in the car. The thing is WAY to expensive to chance damaging it.

Thanks for the help!

Dave

bolts

I normally buy only grade 8 bolts at the hardware store, If your bolt is too long it will try to bend. NOt Good use washers if needed Too short , not enough theads I have a box full of factory lifting rings. some bolt to the exhaust manifold studs, some to the intake. some are L shaped some straight , long and short. I also have some double chain hooks. 2 hooks with a ring in between, used to shorten your hookup.

Wow, lots of options.

I will see what Harbor Freight or the local auto parts store has to offer.

Thanks,

Dave
