    You can't beat Harbor Frieght for great prices. I just bought a transmission jack for my Saab turbo. It's rated at 800 lbs and the transmission weighs around 80. All that for $107 and it has nice casters too... Ron

    That is correct, and i just called my local harbour frieght and they have everything i was looking at in stock.

    You can buy a 2 ton fold away crane for 240 and a 1 ton same type for 180.
    I think the 2 ton would be best as can lift the ski up off trailer and relocate.
    Anyone got a cart to sell.

    1,000 lb engine stand for 60 bucks.

    Pretty cheap if you ask me.

    Sign up for the discount e-mail coupons. They are better than what is on line. Make sure you bring it in with you or you will not get the discount. http://www.harborfreightusa.com/usa/common/start.do

    When I bought the transmission jack, it was listed on their site for $129. When I looked at it at the store it was $149, so I asked and they said that I needed to bring the printout to get the discount. When they rang it up it was $109. I guess they know know what they're doing... Ron

    Your outta control! Do you think the 2 ton crane can lift the 4 tec?

    We usually just use a come-along and set the engine on a work bench..
    You may as well invest in a sling and ski stand so you can just swing the ski you are working on off of the double trailer and onto a stand.

    Steven, I used five of the aluminum spacers that come with the R&D pump wedges, but large nuts will work fine. It requires two spacers that are longer than the third. I'll measure them tonight when I get home.
