I don't have an M10. You might consider a propeller jack. If you have the lift ring attached to your engine case, you might remove the cowling and use a hoist.

20 lb on each horizontal stabilizer won't take any weight off the nose. I would imagine 120 + pounds to hold the tail down secure enough to work on the nose gear.

M10 specific question. Getting ready to rebuild my m10 nosegear during annual. The service manual says to attach weight to the rear tie down to keep the nose raised/remove the nosegear. This seems very stressful. For all other models, it is common to just put some weight on the horiz stab carefully. The m10 horz stab is different, but I would think no issue to do the same....just say 20 lbs on each side over the horiz stab spar.

Just thought I would ask if you have rebuilt the m10 nosegrear, if your mechanic just put weight on the horz stab. I do not like the idea of the weight all on the tiedown!
