    I've pulled between 30 and 40 Toyota engine/trans combos like that out. With the transfercase on, the balance point is about 3/4 back on the length of the engine. Without the transfercase that point would move forward a couple inches.

    It doesn't look unbelievable to me.

    Here's the same thing, but with 18,000 lbs of 11' tall VMC. Had to get it 4 feet in the air to get it off the trailer than lower it to the gravel and slide it into the shop. I used 20 4x8 sheets of OSB cut into 16" squares and some firewood rounds.

    I lived to tell about it. Learned a little bit.

    It cant go anywhere accept down. The failing ladder leg determines direction.
    Why take a picture of your ignorance. The photo should be attached to his job resume. Posting it online it could follow him with a search.
    I have done some rigging I Wasn't proud of but nothing like that.

    There is no hook and no room for one between the chain hoist and the nylon sling around the engine. Fake.

    I dont understand this guy. He buys the cheapest things but buys the 3,000 lb capacity ladders?

    Maybe he though the ladder said rated for 250 tons?

    LOL, I wish there were heavier rated ladders. I max out a Type I 250lb rating before I put my toolbelt on. I buy Type IA ladders (300lb) for the house, and would seriously consider Type IAA (375) for the workplace for anything more than changing lightbulbs.

    But I suspect a 3,000lb rated ladder would be a solid block of fiberglass with steps carved in the side with titanium reinforcements.

    The guy doesn't seem to be the best mechanic in town, however It looks like he's an expert with Photo Shop.

    I don't think it fake fake and for sure and I've done worse as a younger man.
    Maybe it is as I would expect more tilt towards the ass end so that seems weird without an extra strap but I do not know that engine/tranny balance point.
    Think back to when you were 16 and building cars with no money.... That tree branch should hold a 427 and tranny.......oops, oh poop...
    You all have never done anything way stupid like this?...Really?
    It all looks scary but seems doable and once you start to lift and it all sits tight you just trust it and go.
    It's only what, 500-800 pounds max? So 200 pounds at most on each foot?
    If I placed a board on top would you be afraid to stand on a propane cylinder?

    A total hack to be sure and wobble to be care of but I do not see this as some crazy land or not working.
    If you find such things insane or not understandable go lock yourself in your rubber walled room.

    I think it very scary and at the same time very cool and even now I'd do it as shown if that was what I had at hand.
    Seems reasonable to me.
    What is the unit load on the ladder top or per foot or each brick or tank?
    Not falling over is the big one.

    I'd like to know why people see this as fake. You have never done this silly stuff? It seems not real?
    How many times have you swapped motors with no cash or a decent shop in hand?

    The Op shows all wrong but also sort of sweet and run what you have.
    Bottom line, I like it and hope it 100 percent real.

    I remember helping pull a 235 six out of a 62 C10 in a friends place. We had a cheap come a long attached to a 2x4 truss. Had to crib up the truss so we didn't collapse his shed and then we had to lower that heavy thing and I don't recall that come a long being fun to let the load down.

    Wish we had a chainfall and ladders that day.

    I remember putting a new tricked out 390 into my old Ford Highboy and 11 PM Sunday I go to drop the distributor in and the fucking oil pump hex drive wasn't in the oil pump right and fell into the pan. I had to be 250 miles away in 7 hours to get ON A SHIP. I made it there. Broke the cam in on the freeway.

    I didn't know how dumb I was back then. Probably still don't.

The lash-up of rigging doesn't seem to allow the engine to be swiveled so it must have been pulled the way it's hanging..the car or truck was 'backed' into the garage. A normal person wouldn't do that...so, it truly is a fake pix!

    I've removed an engine in a similar orientation.

    Of course I removed the rest of the vehicle around it first.

    I'm not sure if I have pictures of it but I picked up a 5000 pound Timesaver and didn't have a big enough forklift. I used two offset pieces of rectangular tubing to lift it off of the truck with a two post vehicle lift.

    Is this better or worse? Taken from my local FB marketplace.

    I was going to say worse, I don't see a single lag bolt in the thing. Layout looks nice, just not fastened well.
