- '66 Roadster
I want to do some work on my engine and replace the transmission, and would like to know from those who have experience, how high I need to jack the car (reference ground to frame rail) to be able to pull both the engine and transmission together. Also, I assmume you alternately jack the front an back until you get the height you need. When you use a jack, it does not/cannot jack straight up, but tends to pull towards the handle. Either the car has to move or jack has to move to accomodate this. With say the back of the car on jack stands (on the frame rail), will the car pull forward or the jack backwards or does a couple of inches at a time not matter. Thank you for the benefit of your experience.
