I always use a homemade<br>wooden jackstand, which is nothing more than some<br>wooden 2X4s nailed together. The engine can be<br>allowed to drop some, but not much. It is difficult to get a standard jackstand in there to<br>work with, thats why i use the wood. Just get your saw and be creative. Good luck, ALSO, you<br>may be tempted to place a small block of wood<br>between the head and the firewall. I did this<br>once and it worked fine, just be careful..<p>HAROLD<br></i><br>
