ROFL. I've met Ron, and I'll just say I disagree and leave it at that

Just take some 2x4s and brace the roof trusses both horizontally on the truss and vertical supports on each side. It will easily support the weight of the engine.

All you need is a floor jack.

Why you do not own a cherry picker already is beyond me though.

You gonna wash it for Neil? Haha

yeah, but is that an office 240 or physical activity 240? otherwise your blood pressure is going to pop like a cork (not just lifting, but holding it while walking) id just rent the hoist. just less hassle.

I'm with Charles, brace the joists and use the 1,000lb hoist if you don't want to spend the $$ for the cherry picker. That sounds like the best plan; that or using your legs to launch it onto your workbench.

I spent too much time picking up my galvanized parts from JimC and my new lotus motor and by the time I got home I had a pile of work to do.

Tomorrow, I have a rover visitor, maybe he can call 911.

Before I had the hoist I used a tree several times. We even used a tree in my front yard to swing a series motor into the rear of John C's disco once.... Go for the tree.

Ok that picture pretty much shows you are an average height (well slightly shorter than the female) and have an average sized right hand.

Oh, how are you moving this lotus engine around?

I am really 6'1". The blonde is 5'9" and in 4in heels and I am standing slightly behind her. Not everyone is a tall gangly looking english guy Charles. If you look at the guy over her shoulder, that is the guy who plays ben frankin in all those commercials and does tours and history channel stuff.

Ron

The lotus engine is in the back of the range rover (place I picked it up put it in with a hoist). I have not figure out how to get it in the lotus, but I will probably do it from the underside.

Lifting a Lotus is easier than lifting a motor?

250 buys a hoist at harbor freight. Don't think of it as money wasted, you'll find other uses for it.

But I would have to store it somewhere. I have exceeded critical mass.

Ron,

Let me know if I can help with some muscle power to pull the engine. I'll see if I can fit this between the kids' soccer, lacrosse and gymnastics stuff on the weekend. Might look to trade you time in exchange for future help on switching out my springs...

Ok, Glenn.

This weekend is build a rover on Sat. in Avondale at Tom's house (R.O.V.E.R.S. club--you are welcome to come down), but Sunday might work do your springs. Did you buy new retaining rings for the front turrets?

We still need to do the tire/spring exchange and you can see if you like my thule box. Give me a call later in the week.

Ron

FWIW I lifted a Triumph 650 engine up 3 flights of stairs yesterday.

I felt like Ron & Neil combined!

The feet fold up against the wall. Doesn't take up much space.

On Saturday night, I carried a girl down a flight of stairs at this club without knowing her skirt was hiked up, no wonder everyone was watching, laughin n pointing at the bottom. She was like 135 lbs which isn't exactly lite for a chick.
