[DML] Re: engine weight?

Hello Andy,A person is enough to carry the transmission and two people to carry the engine (test done yesterday (engine without intake and accessories) to get an extra engine).Usually, I take out engine only but you can do both at once, you just need to have the possibility (with a balancer/leveller) to incline the engine-transmission assembly to get all out of the car. Removing the transmission after the engine is out is very easy.Cranes can take about 1 Ton or more so it is not a problem to handle the engine only or both engine and transmission.As far as you do not need to separate engine bloc from crankcase (Like me on my own engine) you can put the engine on a stand.I bought an engine stand that can handle a 940kg because when a bolt is quite resistant, the engine stand has to handle the engine weight and my weight, jumping on the wrench. ;-)See ebay item #4582952767 for example.Hope this help.Best regards,Chris.#04271 / DL1981.
