About what I thought... I'm picking up a spare engine on Saturday. The guy has a crane to get it on the trailer, but it looks like I'm going to have to invite a mate or two over to get it off....

the problem with moving them by hand is not only the weight, but the fact 3 people run out of places to hold on very quickly... would be much easier if you can make friends with someone who has an engine crane...

If you have an engine stand I came up with a creative way to unloading an engine on your own. The pictures speak for themselves...

i manhandled mine off a trailer onto a engine stand.

fairly tough, specially when the sump (that i was told was empty) decided to empty its self on to the floor. the old pluggers didnt take to kindly to walking in oil
