If using a crane, do most of you use a chain fall (single or double)? Or, crane whip only?

I second what Old Mud and Jerry said; a chain fall AND a spreader bar are the best equipment IMO. Most engines I’ve dealt with (automotive and marine) don’t balance perfectly from the hoist points, so having both gives you precise control. Helps a lot when you’re dealing with close to a ton of free hanging expensive drivetrain...
