Designed and manufactured by Mike Pothoff, owner of
Myk's Tools, a street rodder, racer, and metal fabricator since 1963.
Mike is also the former owner and originator of Myk's Louvered Baseball
Caps from 1982-88 and former owner of Myk's Custom Automotive
Fabrication from 1980-92. Mike knows cars, car people and how to
fabricate quality products.
Mike designed the unique and compact "Engine Hoist
PIVOT PLATE" in 1991 and has been continually improving
and refining it using high quality materials. The "PIVOT
PLATE" has an arm that allows the balance point of a complete
V-8 engine and transmission to be changed in order for it to tilt up to
a thirty-five degree angle to ease installation and removal from a tight
engine compartment. The "PIVOT PLATE" bolts to the
intake manifold and will fit all two and four barrel carburetors of
Rochester, Carter, Holley, & Stromberg and the 1050 Holley
Dominator. Grade 8 cap screws are provided to give a 1500 lb. capacity.
Proven Safe on Aluminum Intake Manifolds. Adapters are
available for fuel injected V-8 engines also.
The "PIVOT PLATE" is "user
friendly" and allows one person to safely and simply install or
remove an engine and transmission from confined engine compartments. It
also works well to re-align the engine dowel pins to the transmission
when only the engine is removed. It allows the correct angle to be
maintained while fabricating engine and transmission mounts. When
working on race cars it allows precision alignment of the engine and
transmission mounts and saves valuable time. It also works on marine
inboards with automotive type engines. The direct bolt on design
eliminates the problem of finding a place to attach chains to keep the
engine level side to side. The compact design clears the firewall when
the engine and transmission are tilted upward and keeps from scratching
freshly painted firewalls. Our slogan is "Ask the person who has
