I am ready to remove the motor from my T and forgot which spark plug hole is best for the screw in eye.
Number 3 or 4?

Fred I used #3 when I pulled mine. Best of luck.

I am no expert but heres how I do it. I use 2 lifts --one in # 1 and one in #3. I lift from # one which raised the front and allows the pedals to clear the fire wall. The I hook to #3 and slide her out. FYI: when you hook to # 1 and raise it up any residual oil in the engine will run out, all over the floor, under your tool box and lubricate any tools that may be on the floor. I tie a plastic bag around the hogs head to minimize the mess. I have also found it helpful to lightly grease the frame rails and the engine will slide easily. Good Luck dewey

The center of gravity is between #3 and #4 when you put the engine & transmission on the stand. But I remove the head and use head bolts to attach my chain at both ends of the block. I've never liked the idea of putting all that weight on a spark plug hole. I know lots of people do it with no problem, but I still don't like it.

Thanks Steve.

Success :-)

I started in #3 and got the motor part way out. Then needed less weight at the back because I needed to thread the peddles thru the firewall so I moved to #4.

Those blocks of wood in the motor mounts are a royal pain. I had to pry the frame apart to get them out. I'm guessing that there is a slight inward sag after 96 years.

I like to run a chain between cylinders 2 and 3. Can't get any safer I figure.
