      I use these

      http://www.harborfreight.com/2000-lb-capacity-geared-winch-5798.html

      They are a bit slower to operate but there is no neutral to them so they will hold in position and yes they will lift a motor and trans if needed..put 2 on one on each side as that will help in balancing a load if needed..

      the cable will run to a block in the then to a block in the center of the lift. use a snatch block so it is easy to re rig if needed..

      Much cheaper than what I had picked out too. I'v seen people accidently click the boat winches in neutral and leave the boat in the water when they go to pull it out. it's hard not to point and laugh

      Get rid of that erector set setup. Cheap factory junk that was never built to last.


      Hollow out the of the old stuff and throw away that gear/cable so your just left with the "post"
      Then install the thing in the link below.

      One of those things where you can easily find a spot to mount it that is easy to turn the thing (like inside the bed side panel in front of the tire outside the frame) and allow for the cable to raise and lower easily.
