    Default Engine out - I'm getting good at this!

    Pulling Noble engines is not s skill I was lusting after, but I definitely have the muscle memory now. My chain even had the cross bolt in it from last time.

    How's that Quickjack? that looks cool. I've briefly looked into other options before, often more expensive and/or bulky than i want...
    this looks more affordable

    I was about to ask about the QuickJack as well. I just got mine and I was not able to balance the car (with engine in) in the position you have it. I had to move the rails inside and rearwards to lift the car at the chassis joints...

    I bought the Quickjack after deciding that there's no way a 2-post or 4-post would work out in my garage. I really like it. I have no problem working on a car while laying on my back. Been doing it that way for almost 50 years! I get a sore neck from constantly looking up when I visit a guy with a lift. I store the lifters under the car and the pump fits under my parts washer.

    I position the rubber pucks directly under the front "lift here" locations, and about 5 inches behind the rear "lift here" locations. I don't understand why you had a problem balancing the car. 5" behind the rear lift location is well aft of the center of gravity.

    Cool. Are these the 3500 or 5000 model? i want to get the 5000 so it can be used for the other cars that are... well.. heavier, but hopefully want to make sure it will still work for the noble. Measurements seem to check out, but better to hear first hand!

    I have the 5000 for the same reason. My S5 is one heavy pig!
