Going to be 36 happy owners of those cradles. I have the older design and am pleased with it.

Dave,

When did the change from older design to newer design happen?
What were the big changes?

Just trying to confirm which version I have.

Thanks for your efforts.

This is the first design, basically a copy of the original only deeper to accommodate the deep OFFY oil pan, but did not work well with the OTTO pan as the OTTO pan has fins between the bolts, so I bought every single oil pan on the market and the OTTO windage tray spacer and designed a cradle that would work on a stock oil pan and every pan combination on the market, and that is the new and final design, the old design is fine and only sold 10 of them before I came up with the idea for the Ultimate cradle, It did take a lot of figuring and test fitting to figure out this design that works with every oil pan combination on the market.

Rick Norris loves his, as well as everyone who has bought one, makes power train removal / install easy and safe!

Thanks Dave. I bought mine in 2017 so I much have the later improved design then.

Hi Dave motohead,
I noticed you have the same harbor freight trans jack as I do, so your cradle definitely got my attention. I just have a big steel plate bolted to mine. How much are they and how do I order one? Also, when I buy one, could you draw me a diagram of how you attached yours to the jack?
Thanks.
