    7 feet of 3/8" chain. Didn't know the grade so I got the biggest stuff they had. Cost me 24 bucks /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
    Hopefully one day after school I can pull that engine out.
    Still need to find some wood to set it on like someone suggested so the oilpan doesn't get squished. Couldn't find a tire I could squish.
    Tomorrow I will get more cut off wheels, and away I go at the rivets after the tranny/t-case and engine are out.

    (Weakest) chrome->nickle/grey->gold->flat black (strongest)

    This is usually the way to tell what grade it is.

    Dont despair--even the "cheap" 3/8 proof coil chain has a working load of over 5000 lbs.More than enough to lift any motor/tranny/transfer case--heck,you could pick up your whole truck with it!.Just dont stand under anything you lift--ANY chain can break!. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    LOL, I won't be standing under it. Thanks, hopefully Saturday I can do it. I was supposed to do it tomorrow, but I had to cancel that in order to get contact lenses.
    Thanks for the help!
