Default So what do you think

Friend and I designed this proto-type and works great for carb or blower applications, got tired of pulling things off the tops of engine to put them in and out with a single point pull above the intake, this spans the entire intake area and straps to the lifting eyes front and rear, with a pin adjustment to shift load front or rear.

I like it, and would like to try for comparrison, but think its a modification of the current one which has a crank to move the pivot. I really like the 2 one inch lifting straps which are placed under the exhaust manifolds. The straps can be moved ever so slightly to change the balance. Eddie Young showed this and have been using it ever since

it was made for me, this is not a spin or knock off of another design, if the engine is balanced correctly you dont need to crank anything if you want to lift engines by the exhaust manifolds thats great, mine dont have them, I prefer head mounted eyelets

Nice work, it`s always a pain trying to find points to hook up to . Especially with a blower .
I like my pit pal it also works pretty well.
