<VV> How high is enough ?

I just use a floor jack with a large (4 inch?) cup and length of 2X6.  I 
typically put the front jack stands about mid to 2/3 range and the back ones 
full up.  I've never measured the height of the rear off the ground - but I 
do not remove the carb studs and still have room to pull the engine out. 
Best guess - probably 2 1/2 to 3 feet from the floor to the bottom edge of 
the cutout where the rear air grill has been removed.  If you find that you 
have run out of room, you can lower the front a bit.

Later, JR
