    Last resort engine mount, I would spend the little time and stick the overhead lifting tabs/eyes on. Not a fan of wing jacks at all.

    Bolts are correct length. The brackets are to wide. Top bolt especially, when torqued to spec theres only 1 thread out of the nylon and about 80 thousands gap under the bracket. I can keep tightening...
