Installing or removing an engine is a nerve-wracking operation. Even the most powerful engine can be fatally damaged if it falls during the process. Engines are expensive, heavy, and delicate, so anything that can make installation or removal easier and safer is money well spent. Mac's Pivot Plate is one such item. Used in conjunction with an engine hoist, it allows you to tilt the engine up or down on demand. The Pivot Plate bolts straight onto most standard two- and four-barrel carburetor mounts and can fasten to other engines with available adapters. We think the Pivot Plate falls into the category of "never loan" tools. Keep this one stashed away so you'll always have it when you need it. It's that good.
