Any suggestions on where to lift it from? Are there any threaded holes for lifting eyes? I also considered maybe removing the plugs from the return passages and using short pieces of 2" black iron to wrap a sling around.
Plan B for using the big tapping is to bush it down to a reasonable size and make a tee with black pipe nipples. Those pipes with holes in them make me nervous (though I've never heard of anyone having a problem using them).
