Post by Gangey on Sun Jun 01, 2014 12:51 am

If over top how do I do it. Like where do lift the car up from

I put my engine in from underneath and it was pretty straight-forward. There's pictures on my project thread but in summary I lifted the front of the car with an engine crane and ropes around & through the front cross-member, loaded the engine & 'box on a little trolley and shuffled it under the car. Then I dropped the car back down over the engine, detached the crane then used it to lift the engine up into the bay and onto its mounts.

Not close up, no. But I just looped the rope through a couple of the holes in the front cross member...the ones the rad sits in I think.
