Lifting Engine onto Engine Stand

Hi Guys

I am getting ready to lifting my engine onto my engine stand. I have the P201 engine adapter. I have a 2 ton hoist. Should I reuse the studs that come off the tranny to bolt the P201 adapter? Or buy some shorter bolts? What size are the threads?
Also should I use the back engine mount bar holes?

Thanks in advance.

John

Use the already in-place studs with washer and nuts.

On the 2 long studs, you'll need to use spacer (available at Lowe's in metric size and you don't realy need the machined lip as seen in the pics below) and file flat the washers as the washer is too wide to fit between the stud and the 201P edge.

Or, if you got $, like tool and nice engineering you can buy these: Pelican Parts - Product Information: STOMSKI-SR028

So what is the best place to lift at the front of the engine? Engine motor mount bolt holes?

I used 2 rigging straps(tractor supply). Left the engine crossmember attached this gives you a lot of options 4 lifting from that side from the front of the engine. Rear of the engine as you can see 911 engine mount fixture also a lot of options to strap around. I didn't like the idea of steel chains And hooks up against aluminum engine block close for potential damage. Hence the straps.

Two strong guys can pick up a motor if you take some of the accessories off first...pick it up by the exhaust

engine mount bolt holes I think would be fine if you need to get a hook there put a big a substantial boLt and nut through it with washer make sure its secure you dont want that thing letting loose while in the air.

I guess we were a bit wimpy...

We were 3, a 30 seconds job. The way to go.

It isn't all that heavy but it is very expensive! I don't really remember how we got to that point but I think we did it because the legs of the engine stand I have wouldn't clear the legs of the hoist. It was funny to step back and take a look at.

It all worked out in the end.
