A 1/2 Ton would be more than enough

Just be aware the farther you go out as far as extending the hoist arm the less weight it can carry. Last motor/trans I pulled was with a one ton and it was just fine though. Do yourself a favor and spend the $50 for a load leveler, you'll thank me later.

It worked fine with no problems I put it on 1/2 ton and worked great and I pulled both the engine and transmission together
