Engine hoist modification


Recommended Posts

I use my hoist around the shop for moving a lot more than just engines. (You ever try and move a cast iron powerglide?)

So in a moment of clarity I decided that I would convert my hoist to air over hydraulic operation.  It could not be easier, two bolts, it dropped in perfectly and it works great.  I got the ram through Northern tool

though this one is a bit cheaper, it looks to be manufactured pretty much identical other than the painting of the resevoir

If you pull engines more than just once in a blue moon, this is a handy upgrade, and everything works as normal when the air is not available

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
