    Well the 6-cylinder motor fitted.....just.
    Problem is if you lift the load off-centre the poor old scissor jack bends sideways (it is a K-Mart one).

    Just two more engines to shift and it probably won't get used again for a while, just need to find room then to store the engine mover !

    That crossed my mind, just put a tarp over mover & engine.
    Might do that as there is no room in the sheds.

    Just moved 2 more engines.
    The C240 Isuzu was a pain, a bit wider than I thought so I had to remove the alternator and throttle body to get the frame over.
    Still turned over after sitting under a tarp for about 8 years or so. I'm keeping it as a donor for my Series III shortyhttps://www.aulro.com/afvb/other-powered-series-land-rovers/151959-isuzu-c240-powered-series-3-a.html
    The worry was that if something on the Isuzu fails I'll struggle to get parts. This could donate a starter, alternator, injectors, injector pump etc. I had to get a mate to machine a flywheel for mine plus I had to helicoil most of the threads on the conversion plate.....then I got this motor complete with flywheel & conversion plate !!

    Just need to touch up the paint on the lifter then look for a stronger scissor jack (if such a thing exists).

    Forget the jack, and lift it from the front/back of the frame using ratchet straps. Even the cheapest junkiest ones you can buy will work well

    I ratchet strap my engine crane to the tractor carryall to move motors around.

    Not practical on a smaller property, plus I'm in enough trouble with the cars & bikes I have without adding a tractor !
