10 minute head lifting bracket

Made one up in less than 10 minutes with supplies I had in my garage. Used 2" angle iron, 1 1/2" washer, and 4ea 1/4 long nuts. Used an old intake gasket as a template, and drilled out the long nuts with a 5/16 bit. After welding the washer I put it in a vice and bent it back at an angle. Works as well as factory Ford I have used in the past!!! Excuse the weld my mig is running out of gas.

Re: 10 minute head lifting bracket

I have the factory ford at work, but forgot to bring it home. This worked just as well, and less than $2.00 in parts if you had to buy. My work is only about 10 minutes away so I almost went in to get it. Decided it was quicker to build and it was.
