Hahaha, it won't run, so I had to jack it up...BTW, where are the best places to jack it up? I thin the front crossmember looks really weak, I don't see many good places.

Sure, that's a no-brainer. I use that tool all the time. You are speaking of the 'tool' in your left hand, right?

That crossmember is probably the strongest area in your car. You can use it. The crossmember is behind the oil sump--don't jack under the radiator.

yes, the cross member behind the sump, looks good. I am only asking, as some stuff under there looks pretty weak.

Good picture! You oughta fit in here just fine.

As many do, I lift the front of my Spider with the jack under the front crossmember, behind the oil sump, with a piece of wood between the jack pad and the crossmember. I lift the rear with the jack under the differential. I put jack stands under the jacking points to support the car once it has been lifted.

Alfas will rust in the area of the jacking points, so it is important to make sure that they are solid.
