Thanks for the link! Looks like a simple rig to fabricate.

Have you looked in the Sportsterpedia 'Tools' section to see if anyone has reviewed it??? Towards the bottom of this page -

I like your work smarter not harder concept. However, being cheap like I am I would reinforce the 2x4 rafters and use the come along.

You're pretty much xxxxed on item 5. Made in downtown South Korea.




The San Jose facility seems to be where they un-crate and distribute the Korean products.
K&L products can purchased from hundreds of independent and franchised dealers throughout the United States and the World. Distribution centers are located in Santa Clara, CA, and new in 2015, a location in Atlanta, GA. K&L manufactures proprietary products through its facility in South Korea (K&L Supply Korea).
Begin again.

have you read your factory service manual? yours should be the same.lift engine off the mounting pad slip engine from right side while tipping top of engine slightly off center of chassis.that's from my 2003 fsm. my 900 manual states install a spare engine bracket and with a hoist centered directly over engine attach a hook securely to bracket lift engine off the mounting pad then slip engine from left side of chassis top of engine tipped slightly toward center of chassis.

When I needed to take apart the BMW (everything behind the engine) to do a clutch R&R I just hung a chain fall from the ceiling....

As stated by others...engine has to R&R from the side and if you do not want to lay the frame on the ground you have 3 options

1...have a VERY strong friend place engine in frame (BTDT)

2...place engine in frame without top end (that's what I do)

3...mini-fork-lift

2. I don’t live in Texas.
3. The object is to put motor in the frame BY MYSELF any time if the day or night.
4. I do not want to spend more than $500 for a hoist that can do the job.
5. It has to be USA made.

Thanks again.

Best,
Harry
That's not happening....

Sorry. When I said made in USA, I should have said not made in China.
I have no problems with products from South Korea. I have have had several lifts, wheel chokes, etc. from K&L and they have all been perfect.

If I was interested in your thoughts on how to put a motor into a frame, I would’ve asked that question to begin with.

Over the years I have removed and installed several Ironhead motors. I’ve always done this using the laydown method. That has been very well explained elsewhere on this forum.

Works extremely well accept it requires more floorspace than I have available in the winter.

I asked a very simple question. Anybody out there that can actually answer it.

Much appreciated.

Harry
Starting a thread on a forum is like rolling a tire down a hill. You can’t control it once released.

I have never used that lift, but some similar types in an industrial setting. Limited in what it can do. It would be hard to maneuver with the load.

I’d just assume have a fold away “engine hoist”.
