    dropping Northstar

    I have an 1999 Cadillac SLS. I am a seasoned mechanic. I need to pull my motor because the head gaskets are bad. My only concern is that I do not have a hoist to lift the vehicle off the ground. All I have are a few floor jacks and blocks of wood. Has anyone ever dropped the cradle without the actual use of a car hoist? Is it possible for me to do this without a car hoist, rather floor jacks and jack stands?

    Several people have done it. Check the Tech Tips section. Zonie and Tateos have tutorials in there that may cover what you are asking. Might even be a few others.
