Somebody show us if you can find at least one engine which was affected by the lift....
I would love to see that.....never ever i have even heard of this ,somebody proof me wrong...
please, the engine is a solid structure stop worrying about the bearings or anything else inside...


85911... i believe you it is all about the technique how to use your jack...
There are thousands of 911s still in service with oil leaks, many from the crankcase. Is this a direct result of using the engine as an unofficial jack point? I don’t know. Some leak there. Some don’t. Can anyone disprove there’s a connection?

BTW, the engine is not “a solid structure”, as much as we’d like to imagine.

I’m not on a crusade. I merely stated my humble opinion, not a pronouncement. Once again, YMMV.
