This question has come up before,but I forget the answer. I too can lift the gearbox (it is heavy) but I think Nick is a bit on the light side. I've read somewhere that the MGB engine transmission is around 400 lbs. so I think our combo would be somewhat heavier by 50 to 100 lb. I have a 1/2 ton lift at full extension and the engine/trans seemed bloody heavy lifting it out of a small pickup truck. So a small lift will work, heavier duty ones may be a bit easier to use because they are more robust. When I take the engine/trans out of Yellow TCT I am seriously think of raising front of the car and sliding the engine/trans out on a dolly.
