My 93 CPS isn't adjustable either. Just bolts on.

Use a 3/8" 6 inch long extension through a hole in the flywheel to hold it.

Are the two existing lift brackets enough to lift the engine and keep it semi level?

My new motor is sitting on the rear end. How am I gonna safely lift that? Throw on the oil pan and try to sit it up?

'92 has one like '87-'91. Really simple to align, easier than the '87-'92 TPS.

SC gasket came yesterday, water pump the day before... looking for a good engine hoist and load leveler. The ol L67 keeps chugging along. Hopefully until I have everything.

Alrighty, hoist came. I've got nearly everything. I went to get a load leveler and realized I don't have bolts to hold the engine to the stand. Anyone know what the thread is?

No clue. But I bet you'll have some bolts when you get it off the trans and out of the car on the hoist.

New engine goes on the stand first... before I've got the old one out. So I need some more bolts. And they might need to be longer. The mounts on the stand have sleeves an inch and a half deep.

Anyone? I need to put the new engine up on the stand before the old one comes out to minimize downtime...
