Wanting to pull my 360 with automatic attached. Thinking about buying one of the cheap'o import cherry-pickers and engine stands on e-bay. Cherry picker is rated for 2 tons and engine stand for 1,000 pounds. Has anyone used these for FE engines?
The FE weighs about 750 lbs with all the accessories. The C6 weighs qite a bit but I'm not sure. Nowhere near 2,000lbs all together though so you should be fine. Unless you have a special aftermarket bellhousing you have a C6 not a C4. I know the books sometimes say different but that is wrong. The engine stand should also hold. Just be careful and let the weight down slowly.
I bought a cheepy 750lbs.rated engine stand for my FE motor.
It does the job, but barely and I don't trust it. I didn't realize the 360 was so heavy. I am used to (this is probably a dirty word in this forum)small block chevys and this ford weights a lot more.
Hey Rat, How is a C6 visually diffrent from a C4? Mine has the bell housing as part of the trans bolting directly to the engine (no separate bell housing). Can you or anyone please help me out with some of the other codes. 131 X F103 8 4 G 08
