Re: [DML] Re: engine weight?



Thanks for the help guys.  Looks like I am going to buy a 750 lb stand 
and just rent the cherry picker.  What size bolts do I need to hold the 
engine to the stand?

   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
