    I used to make them for people but sales were so low that I eventually stop making them. Shouldn't be too hard to fabricate something similar. Home built tabs won't look as nice but they should work okay.

    Andy, I did my best to copy your lift plates. Now, I'm stuck again. My engine lift bar is about 21". It looks like the diagonal measurement across the motor is over 30". I'm obviously missing something. Any advice you can offer, greatly appreciated. /Butch 20200130_153225.jpg 20200130_153328.jpg

    I made a spreader bar that I hooked to my tilter. Then had a chain at either end drop straight down to motor lift points.

    Do recall if you used round or square stock and what thickness?

    I used flat stock 1/4 thick.about 4in wide I welded extra pieces to make a T . If you dont the flat stock will bend. I will pull it out and take some pics for you. If you were closer I'd loan it to you.
