For the Love of Tools III: Lift anything you want!!

Written By: der5er - Aug• 16•06

Engine HoistThis weekend, I’m borrowing a tool that I’ll always want and probably never own. I really have no need for this one, but it would just be so awesome to have!

Engine Hoist, Cherry Picker, Engine Crane…whatever you call it, this is a fun tool to have around. To know that with a couple of hours disconnecting things, you can pull the engine out of any car, is a powerful feeling.
Why do I need it this weekend? Well, I’m finally going be attacking the car in the garage. My brother-in-law and I will be stripping to the floorboards a 1988 e28 M5. Then, we’ll talk about what I’m going to list on E-bay for him. I’ll post some pictures so you can see what the shell of an e28 looks like.

    When you have a chance, contact me. I’m wondering if you’re still interested in writing about cars….
