Question Taking engine off...

Does anyone know if there is anywhere in the west midlands where I can hire an outboard engine lift/crane from?

I also need the lifting eye that bolts on the flywheel, are these easy to get hold of?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!!

You can hire a normal engine lift from HSS and I have a lifting eye you can borrow. Where about in the west mids are you?
