I am looking for pictures or diagrams to make a transmission sling or lift whatever you want to call it. It has 3 hooks and 1 ring in the middle. It has 3 chains and hooks to your engine lift. It lifts the transmission so you don't have to break your back. Thanks in advance.

I would be curious to see some pictures as well. If all goes well, I will have my engine out of the car next weekend to replace the slow speed drum, and fix the mag coils..

The picture is in the manual "The Model T Transmission",i have attempted to scan it but it disappeared,its very simple to make,three long 1/4" eye bolts,three pieces of chain about 20" long and a ring and some connectors to connect the chain to the ring,you will bend a hook in the leg of the eye bolt and this slips in between the magnets and lift with the ring.

This devise is shown in the Clubs manual of transmission repair. I have used it for years and works very well. If not posted later today, I will take a picture and do so.

I just bent some 3/8" rod into hooks, welded it to 3 equal lengths of chain. I used one of the screw together chain links to join the chains at the top.

This is the only picture I could find, but it shows the hooks at the flywheel. Hope this helps, Jim

Richard must live in Australia! The picture looks upside down here in California!

It is relatively easy to lift with 2 men. I use my son for help.

There are Ts in Knoxville? You mean I wasted last Thursday and Friday sitting inside a glass marble looking down on the city when I could have been talking cars with you guys? Dang it.

I did like the general store though.

I use a chunk of 1/2" rope looped through the magnets twice so there is four lengths going up to the lifting hook on the chain block.

Rick,

I was in the Sunsphere Thursday and spent the night in the Holiday Inn Select after we spotted a good restaurant. My daughter was there for an interview and we hit the road right after she was through on Friday. It took me a lot longer to get back to Michigan after hitting all the snow.
