Excellent thread. I pulled the V12 from my Continental last Oct. Had it rebuilt by H&H. Don't know the result of that yet.
Curious why you say to attach the hoist to the exhaust manifold bolts and not the head bolts?
My helper and I are having a difficult time getting the engine back into the car. Engine is in place, but the last four inches to do the transmission connection is not working. Welcome to any ideas?'
