I've been dying to share this little discovery and this seems like the right thread and group to appreciate it.

For all of us who dabble in four cylinder engines and need an engine lift, here's one that looks great, is not built to lift the Queen Mary and is truly portable.

What this actually is is a patient lift. You can buy them used on ebay for a song. They've got great casters, really good hydraulics, the legs spread in an out to fit through doorways, they weigh at most 50lbs. (oddly the exact extra weight that Roger has added to Spridgets... hmm!) and in a pinch you can use them to lift Peter in and out of his S2000 grin



I've lifted a Healey 100/4 engine still attached to an engine stand with mine without a hitch... That's pretty close to Queen Mary weight.

Assembling words in the correct order, is not always an easy adventure for me.
And ya see...a very wise old-Greek once told me, as we were gazing upon an S2000 at the corner of 63rd. & Cottage Grove (Chicago), that although it WAS diminutive and looked of-few-pounds, it was actually "as heavy as the Queen Mary!" Now I may NOT know "his lingo" properly & his statement may be in total error but, in o'er 70+ yrs. I've never had anyone approach me, at a street corner, and refute it.
Nevertheless, "P.K.", by reputation, is a self-assured gentleman with a healthy respect for all elders...who, germane to the conversation, CAN take-a-joke. By God, if he couldn't, he wouldn't cotton to all those race machines passing him, SO easily, on the track! wink

...about "all those race machines passing him, SO easily, on the track!"
