Re: Poly engine lift points



I had mine out about 5 times in just a couple years. I like to pull the intake and use the inner corners. BUT. This is where you can bend the pushrods if you use bolts that are too long. You can remove the pushrods on the corners and use whatever length you want. Another good trick is to weld a nut in place of the crank handle on the lift cradle and use an impact wrench to adjust it. If you use the crank it can be prone to wiggle the motor all over the place.

You could pull the intake off and use the straps on all four corners and use the bolt holes that mounted the intake to the head. I put in a B block & trans in that way work great.

Anyone have favorite lift points when yarding out and in a Poly 318?  I have seen those carb lift plates and it’s amazing to me that can hold the load.  Plan to leave the auto tranny in the car.  Light enough being first year of the aluminum case, but just figure why mess with the shift cables if I don’t have to.

 

I would even pull the heads off first if there is any advantage to that.

 

Thanks for any pointers - have not pulled an engine in over 20 years.  ; )  Assembling a new cherry picker and engine stand now for the task.  Also have an OTC load leveler with 4 attach brackets on chains.
