    Default My Christmas present to myself...

    I have four cars - and a one car garage.

    Of these four cars, which are all Celicas, three of them are "keepers" and one is for parts.

    I will be needing to really get my hands dirty after the holidays - as I have to pull some engines.

    I had some big ideas about putting up a beam in my garage and buying an electric hoist - but at this point am thinking a simple engine hoist on wheels would be better in the long run.

    This is what I am thinking about getting - what do you all think about it?

    you can get them cheaper at harbor freight and there just as good.

    Well - I have always used harbor freight for air tools and such in the past - but don't see where they have anything close to that price point with an included load leveler - and keeping in mind that with Northern Tool I have a local outlet so I won't have any shipping charges - I can just go pick the thing up locally and see it before I buy it.

    Northern Tool is basically the same as Harbor Freight.

    That'll do fine. That's the one I had when I pulled my engines and shit. I need to buy a new one though.

    I have that very same hoist. Ive pulled several motors with it. I picked mine up off CL for half the price of new with some extra chains and hooks etc. That will do everything you want it to do and more.

    That's a good idea to look at CL for a used one - I'm gonna try that out as "'tis the season when people need money".

    One of these will fit in my garage. I thought it'd be more expensive than that though... http://www.americanautomotiveequipme...P9A-p/tp9a.htm

    Craigslist is always the first place I look for stuff like that. A lot of times people buy one, pull one engine, and don't ever use it again so they just want to get rid of it.

    This has been the best and most frustrating experience of my life. I thank my dad for all the help he has given me in this rare restoration. Now that the car is done, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
