Can you do one where the guy is being crushed by the engine too?

Finding an able body to help is another story.
I have two 2x6 boards spanning across five beams to spread the load.
I swung on it like a chimp to test, and it is very solid.
I need to adjust the tow strap shorter, as you can see there is not much
room for the come-along to work. As is, i'll get the engine 6 inches up
My plan is to utilize the come-alongs' lifting ability to get the engine up to the front end's level.
Rest it on there, and lower it by hand to the ground.
Sounds easy enough.

I wouldn't hesitate to do it again and again. This garage is rock solid.
Not even a creak from the weight.
For everyone's insight and inspiration to give it a go,
i say cheers!
