I have a 1981 CJ7 with a 258 motor. I motor went out a few months ago and I just located a 1984 258 motor that is in good condition. Anyway, I have the new engine now sitting in the back of my pickup. The gentleman who I bought it from was able to get it in with a fork lift. However, I need an engine hoist to get it out of my pickup and put it in my CJ7.
Is there anyone out there will to let me borrow an engine hoist for 2-3 weeks? I have cancer and I want to install the engine between chemo treatments. It takes about a week to recover from chemo before I can do anything worthwhile.
I told my wife that my dying wish is to get my Jeep running. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Paul/Peoria, Arizona
