I've been thinking of getting an electric hoist to use in place of an engine
crane.  I'm only lifting A series Austin Healey Sprite/MG Midget engines.

My garage has 11'  ceilings with wood joist and 2  2x12s for the center

Can anyone help me with advice on how to mount the hoist on the joist so it
will be strong enough to hold 250-300 lbs.


Also any pros/cons to the concept of doing this.
