Engine/power pack removal cradles, starting a new list if you want one!
Posted by: davemotohead ()

I get about 2-5 inquiries a month asking if I have any engine cradles left, right now I am sold out, I need a min order of 20 to make a run, if you want one I am starting another list for the next order, send me your name and shipping address in a PM and will put you on the list, hoping to compile a list fast and get these going? The price is the same: $140 for a bare metal one you can paint and $160 for a powder-coated one the color of your choice + Shipping.

I also used mine I got from Dave with a bit of adapting on my part under the engine when I recently dropped mine. The adapting was so the engine would sit level on a hydraulic table and not on the oil pan as I dropped it for a clutch R&R.

Using a hydraulic table and a 4 post lift sure made life easier.grinning smiley

If you think Dave is charging to much (He's not), check this auction out:

[www.ebay.com]

BIN $425.00/OBO plus shipping. Plus it's bare metal.

Already have one (Yellow) from Dave. Nice.
