we have lift off

Getting the motor in the air was a lot easier than I anticipated with the help of the Harbor Freight crane and a safety harness.

For anyone doing a similar swap, here are some good/stable mount locations from which to lift the motor:
turbo heat shield bracket


a/c compressor & alternator bracket


and a little side note… the motor was full of oil. unlike BP, i had some oil absorber handy 😉
