Ok have a friend looking for one.. I know I know I have no friends Evil or Very Mad My set up is older than 99% of you guys so I have no idea what set ups are out there. He wont be using it a lot. Damm found a "ENGINE TILT" thing. Looks like something he can use with it.

I have an old Bluebird and caddy.

I can pull an engine out of a 3rd gen Camaro without taking off the nose.
Only minor complaint I have is that the front wheels are fixed.

They were sold as rental units. I sometime see them on craigslist.

I have a fold up one that I got at pep boys like 10 years ago. I love it and it works great for me. I ended up getting it on sale for 99 bucks and also had a $50 rebate. Best 50 bucks I ever spent!

When I had my old Fleetwood, I went to a metal shop and had them cut me a longer boom so I could yank the motor without pulling the bumper off. Smile

Yes. In the "Little Tykes" form, without the extended boom. Razz

Quit teasing him.
He used the extended boom.
It allowed him to back the scooby in.... Cool
