While I do not know specifically if your perkins can sit on the pan, I can tell you that I have had to set many engines down, an they all were fine, I do take every precaution to keep the engine level, and supported if I have to set it down. If things are too tight, you could use 2 pieces of angle iron (2") bolted back to back as a beam. I think you are on the right track, the only thing about lifting that heavy bugger with that little space will be getting the slack out of the chains, and the height you will loose from the chain hoist hook and any slack. Hope I'm helping. I know the PLEASURE of this kinda job! Brian
