Re: how to pull a motor?

560# straight up with a comealong? man that sounds scary!
I suppose, until you've seen it done. I was a mechanic in the army and out in the field we swapped out a lot of transmissions in big trucks with a come along and a big steel pry bar laying between two supports in the cab. Even the cheap ass come alongs I use to keep in my jeep when I was a kid were rated at 2000 lbs. A small chain fall might be better though depending on the vertical clearance between your motor and the bottom of your lifting beam.
