Head Lift bracket

Who's willing to let a poor man borrow their head lift bracket? Planning a complete gasket, head, and arp installing this coming weekend. Looking for an easier and safer way to remove and replace the heads.

I can't loan you one, but going through this right now, I wouldn't try doing this in-cab without one. Going to be putting the heads back in tomorrow. I'm just going to sell it when I am done, so maybe you could consider doing that - buying one and then selling it.

I agree ^^^ I believe having one would have made things a lot easier. Those things are like gold, good luck trying to get a loaner or used one. Most likely you'll just have to bite the bullet and drop $100 for one or make your own. DIY head install/remove bracket.

I know I'm waiting for a unicorn, but I thought I would throw it out there. I found these steps to make my own, but I don't know how much I trust my welding skills.

I hear ya. I had a plan to take a $15 engine lifting bracket and some angle steel and fab something that might work. Needed to cut the bracket and I don't have a band saw so it didn't work out very well. Also that engine bracket was a lot beefier than what I thought it would be and I couldn't bend it to get the proper angle. In the end I just used a chain and man handled the head while my step son lowered the hoist. If I had to do it over (and pray I don't) I would buy the bracket.
