Does anyone know if there are bolt on hooks you can use to pull the engine?

I removed my engine by pulling the top end and bolting to the area underneath the intake.
I'd like to assemble my engine as much as possible in my garage before installing it.
I thought there might be something available or a pic of something someone has made.

thanks,
K

You can use the bolts that hold the alternator in if you be sure that you tighten them well. I don't know of a place to bolt the chains to the rear without pulling the manifold though.

I have used an engine equalizer several times. The only thing I had to remove from the engine was the alternator. I bolted the chain on the front to the two alternator holes and the chain on the back to the two top transmission bolts. It leaves enough clearance that you can leave the entire intake (including throttle body) on.

I use an equalizer also, helps sometimes, especially if you pull the transmission out with the engine, and has L brackets to bolt to the block.

I found some extra metric bolts and put them in the front and back of the cylinder heads on my new engine.

On the 95 engine, I used the intake manifold bolts.

That's basically how I pulled mine.

I had talked to a guy who had some brackets that came up from the exhaust manifold. they bolted to the outside of headers he was putting in.
I wasn't sure if they were available, or someone had made them up.

Casper, the equalizer that you show looks much more heavy duty but with the cheap-o piece that I have you don't have to remove the intake.
BTW, the cheap-o one that I have looks much stronger than the one that I linked to but probably isn't anywhere near as strong as yours.

I have been using for years the brackets left attached to 5.0 exhaust manifolds from the factory. Don't know what years, have a bunch, now mostly modified (I do love to play with fire) to different engines and pull points. A 7/16" wrench at the boneyard and you can have a bunch of them to modify. Alot of different Ford motors have them hanging off the exhaust manifolds.
