When jacking up the engine to remove and install the new rack is it really safe to jack up the engine by the oil pan? has anyone done this before?

put a 2x4 under the oil pan. distribute the weight.

don't forget to under the motor mount bolts. You might want to consider a new set if you don't know if yours have ever been changed. Most likely, when you lift the engine, the mounts will disintigrate if they are old enough.

good news... bad news

Getting the rack installed tonight and tomarrow, the bad news is that it's costing me 200$ But that includes professional installation, alignment, fluids and a weld on the frame.
