Try a search on eBay for "scissor lift -bike -tek -palle*", I got an excellent 200 kg capable lift. It has a sheet metal top which will need some work to get 'rails' on it, but its great for getting access to the rear of the car! Good luck, Mike

Hi jj I have one like that and the wheels are small and find it not so flexible , I use it for working on an engine every now and then because it can be lifted to any desired hight. It depend how you are going to transport your engine ,in a trailer / station wagon etc.. I store my engines on trolleys with swiveling wheels on one side and brakes . The hight of the trolleys is the same as my trailer, I place a short bridge between the two during transfer . Also the engines are mobile .Everything is push pull and no lifting is involved .

We all think somehow the same way . I bolted a 5" track on my lifting table just the same as the one for Shay . the only thing I did different I made a short extension to put on for moving the engine for and aft for maintenance purposes .
Thanks to all for the suggestions. I'll probably go ahead with the Machine Mart table - it looks just about long enough to take my Britannia loco without needing the extension that Shay made for his 7.5" loco.
