Lifting Engine

NOTICE:

To lift the engine, use a suitable lifting device. See Figure 24207 . A spreader bar should be used with a sling and adequate chain hoist when lifting any engine. The lifting device should be adjusted so the lifting hooks are vertical to prevent bending the engine lift brackets. To ensure proper weight distribution, all three engine lift brackets provided must be used in lifting the engine. Be sure the spreader bar is adequate to prevent lifter brackets from contacting the engine rocker cover and causing damage. ‪

A lifter bracket should always be reinstalled whenever removal is necessary. See Figure 24271 . ‪
