As above, anyone local to me willing to loan me a hoist for ten mins ?!

I just need to get my 1MZ on the engine stand in my garage, can pay for fuel/time or possibly collect and return for beers :)

Dont see the point in hiring from HSS or the likes for such a small job !

thanks, tom.

lay the engine and stand on its side, bolt the engine to the stand... and get a friend to help you lift it up...

wouldnt trust a jack...
