New Engine

A friend of mine is pulling out his old engine and installing a new one. I was wondering if anyone here has a short distance matter transfer unit they could loan us for a few hours. It can be a 110 volt unit, or 12 volts dc or even 220.
Thanks all.

Re: New Engine

Yes I have one. It will consume 34 gigawatts per gram per centimeter of materiel transfer. The really cool feature is it pulls power from the future to power the present. That way the bill never comes due because we live in the now.

Re: New Engine

I used to have one of those but for up close in your face it's hard to beat a low tech comalong.

If all else fails, he can always rent a sky hook.

Re: New Engine

I'm facing the same kind of problem. The old 2QM20H weighs 419 Lbs. My only option is a JLG man lift with a rating of 440 lbs. and a chain fall. Should be exciting and expensive. $230per day. It would be so cool if I could do it in one day, but the fact is that it will take several days to set up the engine bed for the new engine, so I'll have to rent it twice. Dang.

Maybe start early in the morning, pull the old engine out. Lift the new engine in
and place it on some plywood/rollers in the salon so you can push it in when the bed is ready.

Re: New Engine
