Default engine lift point

Hey ya'll,

My engine is missing the front engine lift point bracket and bolt. Any idea where to find one cheap?

Thanks!

uh... just toss a bolt in there through some chain.

You don't need those silly brackets.

That'll work. Getting closer to pulling the engine. Got all the fluids drained, radiator out, intercooler piping out. I'm really taking my time and don't expect to be done until fall. Picking up a engine stand this weekend. Still ordering parts, have rods, need pistons. Probably go for the FM Wiseco's. ARP stuff on order. Ordering oil pump, water pump, gasket set, engine mounts from MazdaSpeed Motorsports. Upgrading to a AEM wideband (have it) and a new FM downpipe (also have). Gonna crank the LINK up for all she's worth!

send me a check...ill send you a real management!

it's old and outdated and not as robust. it'll work, no doubt about that, but i haven't heard many people praising it, even from the start.
