What are you doing mon-thurs this coming week?

Want some help to pull your old block and gearbox out?

When are you getting your crank?

Sounds pretty good man. Did you get the flywheel lightened up?

Cheers

Go and beg/borrow/steal an engine crane, you really need it!

I bought myself one a few years ago now, it's paid for itself so many times over, was a good buy!

Cheers

Dude are you rebuilding a motor in your bedroom!
I get away with heaps here but I would never get away with that one.
Two big thmbs up to you from me!
Reminds me of a mate who one winter in the mountains rebuilt a mini motor and gearbox in his kitchen. I had no issues with that I was there helping him.
Well he was using an electric frying pan filled with engine oil to heat up some bearings to expand them for the gearbox.
We finished up at about 2am and both decided we were starving to which my mate said he would cook up a feed a bacon and eggs for us.
100% win! Lost my appetite pretty quickly when he took the frypan he had just done the bearings in outside , hit it with some degreaser and come back in and proceeded to cook bacon and eggs in the same pan that had just been filled with engine oil and bearings!
Well I was hungry up til that point and didnt want to be rude to a mate.....................it most certainly didnt taste right but I am still alive so it must not have been all bad!
