Since (most or all) TR transmissions are pulled by moving up and out thru
the cockpit I would think such a lift would be neither a hinderance nor a
particular advantage for that job. Whether using jack stands or a lift you
still need to support the rear of the engine to undo the gearbox.
These lifts look interesting but jackstands are so versatile and leave a lot
of area open under the car. Things that usually find me under there
(exhaust, drive shaft, oil pan) I see no big advantage in the scissors and
in fact it would often be in the way.
For the gearbox I use one of these (with the ears cut off) for manuevering
the box. Not required but makes a solo OD install less of a physical
