Couldnt get it up high enough, eh?
I am not surprised that the motor didnt come up high enough. (It's setbacks like this that stress me out when renting hoists. Enough that you want to pack the whole used car thing in , and lease a fresh car like the masses out there.)
1. The manual says to remove the front sway bar also. Did ya do that? Did it help?
2. Was the motor high enough to unbolt the oil pick up tube (in order to get the front cover off?
I was thinking of just getting my floor jack under the front pully and jacking away to get it up.
