i tried it that way damn things hit the bell housing n wont let them go in, or what do you mean by suspend ? i lifted the motor up by a jack on the oil pan with a block inbetweenwith arms prob close to 85lbs give or take. Its easier to just suspend the engine and remove the engine mounts.
Yup i got a big 2x6in red wood board to hold my motor up by the alternator bolts. Check out this threadwith arms prob close to 85lbs give or take. Its easier to just suspend the engine and remove the engine mounts.
+1^ I've never dropped a k frame to do long tubes either.get the car at a decent height on jack stands. Then attach a cherry picker/engine hoise to the front and lift the engine as high as you can in the bay with the mounts off the engine and off the stands, you have more than enough room to get any header in there. Takes me 3hrs doin it this way
