down in a hole.
Yanked mine w/ a 2 ton prolly set at 1 ton- maybe 1 1/2...it's alot heavier than a SBC. The trans and transfer and hoist at 2 ton would prolly go. I had 10"poly tiers on my hoist when I pulled mine.

My HF engine lift lifted it without too much trouble. A bigger concern is being careful around it while it is up in the air.

A 2 ton shop crane works fine. The whole combo is close to 1000 pounds, so don't lift on the 1/2 ton setting. I used the 1 ton setting, did the lift and set it down immediately. Worked great.

I did my 2H H55F combo on a 1 ton at the 1/4 ton setting. I couldn't reach any other way! I know I know, it was a gamble, but I was very carefull and it went well. Talk about safety margins though!
Saving up for a 2ton btw!

I borrowed the AC Delco 2 ton and used it on the 1 ton extension. One thing I would have done differently is pull the pan while it is still in the truck where you can break the seal of the gasket with a 2x4 and a bottle jack against the frame. It was a bitch to get off when out of the truck and you don't need to lift the motor as high to clear the front crossmember with the pan off.
