I have one but I'm down in SW Virginia.

I just have the gantry not the transmission mount plate. Another member in our club had his transmission replaced by a guy and he built it. I ended up having my transmission replaced by Barry Owen in NC so I never actually used it.

I used 1 2X4 across the hatch for the back of the engine. I put a chain in the rear of the even side head.

Then I used a plain-jane sawhorse for the lifting tackle to the transmission. I have forgotten if I used a ratchet hoist of a winch bolted to the sawhorse beam.

What ever, the hardest part was getting the transmission out from under the coach as the height of coach was limited by the less than 10' overhead in the barn.

7F63D703-23AD-482C-B3F1-271B87F5FFC0.jpeg I copied fritz’s engine support design…. Works amazing for rear engine support for transmission removal. I have only removed tranny from a lift using a tranny jack. so not sure if this gets in way if one has to lower tranny using a gantree.

Costs me maybe $20 to make.
