Engine out!

Well it took all day, but the lump is now on the ground..

The wonders of time lapse software. Only downloaded this today and chose 5 sec intervals. Might go for 3 next time.

Actual lifting of the engine took about 45 mins, but lasts 15 secs on the vid if that!

Problems encountered along the way included:
Manifold to down pipe bolts -the accessible ones were easy, the awkward one was a bugger that needed dremelling off
Engine mounting bolts all seemed to have different sized nuts & heads
Other than that, just the need for arms two foot longer and half as thick :-)

So, on to sorting out the issues after a good clean up.
