Yep, That parts car sat next to my garage for a year in various stages of dismantling and amazingly, even with my @$$hole neighbors, nobody seemed to care, though they complain about everything else...
And no, the hoist didn't roll at all. Actually, the front end was sinking and lifting the back end in to the air (oops)
See that red truck in the picture? We backed it on to ramps to clear that wall, dropped the engine and tranny in the bed, drove the truck back off the wall and in to the driveway and put the engine on the stand in the driveway.
And the moral of the story... NEVER pull an engine on grass!!!
