  • Lifting your Engine

    Has anyone actually used the lifting points in the photos to move the engine around with a hoist? I'm a bit concerned or am I being paranoid?

      The work fine for me. The older smaller style are bit fiddly due to small holes. The later ones like on my 5mb engine are a lot easier to use, but I like the look of the smaller ones.

        I did mine like Paul, just chains no leveler, worked fine. the hard part was dragging the loaded hoist across the plywood over my slanted rocky driveway.

          Kind of a pit stop engine swap. Out with the petrol and in with the diesel. Both lifted with the factory lift points.
