Was lying under a 280zx one year wiggling the gearbox out, it was up on ramps at front and twin stands at back and as we wiggled could feel it walk on the back stands.

Then we heard about the number of home mechaincs crushed under cars the past year (7)

Got out from under rang an importer who drove down for Adelaide and fitted me up with a 3200 KG hoist for $2500.


That was ten years ago.

Do all service and have sucesfully swaped out engines for:-

1999 FWB SXA20 RAV 4

2005 ACA23R RAV4 FWD

A GT4 AWD all track

a 2004 LWB RAV4

A PEUGOT 306tdi

using endless chain to suspend engine and disconnect everything and then raising the vehicle on the hoist lowering engine dangling below.

Refit all new bits and lower vehicle over subframe.

Some Toyotas drop out with all shafts intact.

Gearboxes bit trickier as my hoist is cross support type and gearbox is in centre and restricted.

Brakes wheels underfloor mufflers all easy as.
