MACS Tie Downs PiVOT Articulated Engine Lift Plate


2 in stock

Make installing that next engine a breeze with the all new PiVOT Articulated Engine Lift from Macs Tie Downs here at CLR Garage.

The Mac’s PiVOT bolts to the intake manifold and has an adjustable arm that controls tilt of a complete V-8 engine and transmission up to 35° angle. The direct bolt-on design of the Mac’s PiVOT not only eliminates the lashing problem that can be encountered with chains, but also eliminates the problem of finding a place to attach chains to keep the engine level side to side. The compact design clears the firewall when the engine and transmission are tilted upward and keeps from scratching freshly painted firewalls.


The body is fabricated of thick steel plate and full-length welds. With a 1,200 lb. capacity, it will not bend like other adjustable lift plates. The grade 8 cap screws are rated to 1,500 lbs. to provide safe use for all iron and aluminum manifolds. It fits most two- and four-barrel carburetors, including Rochester, Carter, Holley, Stromberg and the 1050 Holley Dominator. Incredibly efficient, it only takes 18 minutes to install a flathead and ’39 trans using Mac’s PiVOT and optional adapter plate.
