How and where to chain the engine crane to the motor?

Iíve pulled a number of Ford V8s (with trans attached) and have always had trouble determining the best place to attach the chains to the motor.

I know this may sound very basic, but I suppose itís one of those things that some of you guys may just take for granted.

Also, are chains the best (or only) option ?

Re: How and where to chain the engine crane to the motor?

I personally use an old seat belt instead of a chain.. I find using the sash alittle less damaging than a chain with the other plus is you can feed it thru smaller gaps to get a nice balance point.. For example between the header pipes on a diagonal across the engine..

I'm trying to think if the Winsdors have the factory lifting brackets that the i6 has.. Maybe one of the V8 boys can answer that question?

I'm pretty sure my EF has the lifting brackets.

There is a lifting point at the rear of the right head and another at the front of the left head.
