  • Engine Lift

    What is the prefered way to lift an engine? I see a lot of people use the plate that bolts on where the carb goes, but when I start looking at those 4 little bolts it worried me. How do you guys do it?

    Thanks

    Remove the intake manifold assembly, 8 bolts, fuel line, accelerator linkage. Plug up cylinder head ports with shop rags. Use approprate length grade 8 bolts and suitable heavy duty chain, connected between opposing corners where the intake was bolted down. Hope this helps.

      We usually use longer bolts in the opposite corners of the intake manifold without removing the manifold, but remove the carburetor. I am surprised how much weight those bolts can hold, but I do tend to hold my breath at first.
