Engine Stabilizer for Hoist
I was wondering if anyone had one of these deals that I could borrow for a few days sometime soon. I don't even know exactly what they are called but I think this is close. I'm looking for the deal you would put on an engine and then pick it up with a hoist and this thing allows you to tilt and otherwise manipulate the angle of the engine using a screw deal???
I need one, I think, because the 4.3 and 700 are just so much bigger than all the stock stuff I was hoping I could put them in together and lower them in at an angle like / into the engine compartment and then be able to straigten it all out once the trans tailshaft clears everything. Otherwise, I think I will be standing in the engine compartment pushing down on the trans to get it angled just enough. Either way, I don't think it's really going to be fun, but I'll find out!
If anyone has one that I could borrow, I would really appreciate it.
Or, I might just say to hell with the whole hoist deal and just eat some power bars and lift it in there myself.....
