Steve, I remove mine by placing the car on jack stands and using a
motorcycle lift from harbour freight. It cost about 150.00 as I
remember. The complete power train center of gravity is just forward of
the cam dimple in the pan. I attached a couple 2x2vs along the sides of
of the oil pan running them forward past the balance point 6 inches
using longer bolts in the lower tin holes (which i take off before
lowering) , clamped the lift to the 2x2's and gently lower the whole
assembly out of the car. Takes about an hour out and a hour and a half
back in. Mark Durham

and late models. I have also helped him reinstall the drive train on both
models. I feel that I can do it myself with some help (I would never try
this alone). My friend uses a tranny jack with the Corvair engine power
train cradle bolted to it.
What kind of equipment is available to effect this?
Obviously one needs something a little heftier than a

I have been trying to find the power train/engine cradle (GM tool
Is this still available?
What can be used in its place?
Still only in the discussion stage but would like to hear
ideas/thoughts/comments on this.
