I'm doing a 2F transplant into my '72 FJ40 and need an engine hoist and stand to complete the project. If anyone has a hoist and stand sitting around and aren't being used at the moment, would you be willing to loan or rent them out? It may take me a few months to complete the project due to work, family and funds. Or, if the price is right, I'll just buy the equipment. Thanks.

Thanks Terry! Is the stand rated at 1250 lbs. or more? Now I just need to find someone with a hoist. It may be a couple of weeks before I can swing by to pick up the stand. By then the everything should be cleaned up and just about ready for paint. I'll send you a PM to coordinate pick-up. Thanks again. Kent

I might need to borrow them when you are done. :)

i'd have to disagree with dave on purchasing a cherry picker. if you plan on working on your rig often, you will find it to be invaluable. i've used the heck out of mine...one of my best purchases. just be sure to get a folding one, they take up considerably less space. they run $150-200

yeah, but it doesn't do much good trapped in the back of the garage behind 2 trucks. :)

Here's an idea... the club could purchase a hoist and stand and make it available to members for a fee of $20-$30 a month. I'll be the first to rent it out. :)

Not a bad idea, but someone would need to be the "keeper" of the hoist when not in use.

Wouldn't the "keeper" get free use then? Frankly, I would keep it to be able to use it for free!

Did we ever decide to buy one? I need to borrow one soon for my 40 as soon as I pick up the engine, tranny, etc...
