    5.0 Oil Pan

    Alright guys doing my oil pan gasket on my AWD EB I got everything unhooked that needs to be, I got a engine support bar to hold the engine when I jack it up. I was just wondering where do I hook the chains to? There obviously aint no hooks for this so where is the engine usually supported at?
