Idea for engine lift

One of the mechanics of my work was pulling an engine from one vehicle (Ford E350 ambulance). Its a 6.0 diesel I think. I just wanted to show the setup he made up to make that easier, figured maybe someone else out there mite find it useful. You can easily change the angle of the motor and get it in a hard to reach area. Thats especially helpful in vans since the body is rite on top of the engine.

Nice! I work on those too. the right valve cover requires the body to be raised 1.75 inches to remove in the E chassis. this guy was thinking, since Ford has no set way for removal from the E series for the 6.0

ford has a set way....any engine work on any vehicle may be done by removing the body off the chassis or the engine and sub frame from the uni-body
