I have bought a chain fall to pull my motor. I think it can handle the weight but I'd like to make sure. If the weight of a 1980 Citation 2.8L V6 plus a 4 speed transaxle is , say, 1500 pounds; chain fall is 15: 1 ratio; that's i00 pounds tension on the applied side.

I Think?

This site has it listed at 350 LBs. Trans will add more but no where near the 1500 you were talking about. Heck the whole car is only like 2500lbs

Thanks. Took engineering, learned to design for worst case.
