I have been searching the forums, I don't have a lift, my jack goes up 11", and while I can afford a set of jackstands that go up 23", I can't afford a jack that goes that high. That said, I've seen a couple of guys say that they have installed the kooks to the engine while it's out, and installed it from the top, but does that still require removal of the K?
All of the pics are non-functional, so I'm having trouble visualizing it.
What I thought I could do is get the motor partway in, then thread the headers in and tighten them up while they're out. Stage 8 locking bolts will be purchased, but is that viable plan?
