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.

thanks Cool

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

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