Putting a 1923 Hudson Super 6 on a lift.

I am about to put my 1923 Hudson 4 door Super 6 on a lift and was wondering where the balance point was located.
I know it must be engine heavy but does someone know where the 4 points for the lift to touch the frame?

    My Essex cars require the added cylinder add ons to the four lift arms.  They are necessary to clear the running boards.

    The front arms are quite close to rear of engine on each side.

    Your wheel base is  longer than my 115 inches, hope this helps a little.

  • For any two post lift, rule of thumb is  A pillar just past the post. Lift 4” off ground and rock to see if balanced.
