1997 R50 Engine Removal - Lifting Point??

Recommended Posts

I noticed that there are no places to attach a chain to lift this engine out. What is everyone else using to lift this engine out? I've used a chain and a bolt before but thought I'd reach out before I do this.

When I pulled the engine out of my donor, I knotted old seatbelts around the engine mounts and ran those up to the load leveler. Found out later both mounts were broken, not sure if I did that or if they were like that before I started. Luckily they held. 


I was pulling the engine and trans together, so having both straps tied pretty low on the engine wasn't an issue. If you're pulling just the engine, you might want to find somewhere to bolt a plate. The back of the heads have a few threaded holes IIRC.
