Common ratchet lever hoists have the capasity to lift up to 5 tons, but some can only lift 1/2 ton its important to consult your user manual for exact numbers before use.

How to remove hills hoist from ground socket


Wrap a chain or rope around the base, and then around a 2" x 4" length of lumber (or somesuch) near the end. Put one end of the board on the ground, and lift the other end.

Use it as a lever to pull straight up and remove it.

Can i possibly pull a 3.4 out the top from a 2001 olds sillouette van, i pulled one from a 2003 dodge caravan, it was tough but it worked. can it also be done in the olds. i dont have a hoist or accsess to...


Its going be tough to pull out anything other than a small 4 cylinder without a hoist. You could use a comealong. Its like a small hoist, has a chain and a lever you can use to lift the engine. It has a hook on it to allow you to attach it to something.

But to be able to use it you need to put the car underneath something that is sturdy enough to support the weight of the engine, like a large limb on a tree or a metal frame of a garage or something like that.
And you will need a sturdy chain. The bigger the better. Attach the chain to your engine lift hooks.
Get some grade 8 screws,nuts and washers from home depot. Get the largest diameter screws that will fit through the links of the chain. Make a loop on each end of the chain by putting the screws through links and tightening the nuts on the screws. Put the loops you made on the engine lift hooks. Attach the come along to the tree or whatever you can find thats sturdy enough to support the weight of the engine with another chain. Then lift the engine out.

you will have to detach the ac compressor and power steering pump and tie them out of the way with pieces of wire. That way you wont have to discharge the ac system or drain the power steering fluid. Remove coolant hoses and fuel lines. And remove the half shafts for front wheel drive. Then detach the motor mounts/transmission mounts. Of course, theres a lot of other stuff you need to detach, but im sure you know that already.

You can rent engine hoists for like $35 a day from a Taylor Rental or other equipment rental
company. Rent it one day and take it back and rent it another day when you are ready to
put the engine or another engine back in.

Hi I purchased a used jazzy 1103 for my father and need to replace the batteries I cannot remove the seat directions say pull friction lever up to remove seat however the seat won't move


the seat post is probably rusted in the post. Try lifting the handle and twisting the seat and pulling up at the same time it can really be very hard but keep trying and maybe get some help to lift as it is being turned. I've had to use a hoist to lift it off the floor and twist the seat until it comes out. Hope this helps

Wheels sticking will not open lock jammed


The bugaboo brake lever can lockup. Check the screw nut at the bottom end of the cable. If you can wind that down to take some tension off the cable the lever will them release. If there is no adjustment try lifting the lever up higher (as to put the brake on harder) then push the white release button at the same time. The break lever uses a set of ratchet teeth that must move up slightly to release.

How do I hoist or lift an old 2001 Mercury Sable engine and replace with new? I need places on the engine that will allow me to lift out engine with a hoist.


ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION HAS TO BE SUPPORTED ON THE BOTTOM BY A POWER TRAIN LIFT. THE ENTIRE CAR BODY HAS TO BE RAISED BY A LIFT UP AWAY FROM THE POWER TRAIN WHICH IS SUPPORTED UNDER THE BOTTOM WITH A SPECIAL POWER TRAIN LIFT OR TABLE.

Manual chain hoist keeps slipping load chain when under load (lifting and lowering). It will hold when you keep tension on the slack side of load chain. Any ideas?


sounds if the motor brake is not holding , this is a wear part and will require adjustment/replacement over its life time , the brake is located under the motor cover , but if your not sure what to adjust ,then im gonna suggest for safetys of you and the people around it' s sake you get a profesional to service this hoist
