I have an original Kent Moore J-7894 cradle I bought new in the late sixties. Just curious what kind of jack is that pictured under your cradle? I've been using a regular floor jack, with a homemade tilt pivot for years. Always wanted a trans jack,but they seemed so heavy and bulky. Yours looks lite and compact.

Yeah, I want one. I had been debating when the last order closed out, so I guess I should jump on this one.

Another advantage to the Motohead Engine Cradle is that, once the engine is out, you can support it by passing two rods or pipes under the cradle and resting the rods on four jack stands. It provides a rock solid work service without the need to remove the engine from the jack / cradle.

I haven't even opened mine yet and you're already filling more orders. Unrelated - that's a cool "lightened" engine mount support on that one engine.

Dave just make them. They will sell later when others find out how great they are. I have one and I use it and love it. It works great with any kind of oil Pan.
