I put the 316 to work helping Steve do an engine swap on a Chevy 4X4. Yesterday I helped him pull the old motor, didn't get pics. But today I got some of the new one going back in. Here I'm hauling the new one back to the truck.

Aligning it up and Steve is putting on the Motor mounts.

Setting it in place.

Got it all done. I've had this hoist for about 30 years. Built the frame for tractor pulling it because everywhere I've had it there wasn't concrete for the original frame to work on. It's been used many times this way. Has a 2" ball hitch, so you can hook it to a vehicle if need be. I put grease zerks in the wheel spindles so you can travel a little ways with it.

I like it. What size spindles are those. between the lift the engine and the counterweight they must be carrying 400 lbs each with a well balanced load. Most of my engineering of such things consists of "if it breaks i"ll beef it up".   Don

They are 1" spindles. Welded into 3X3 3/16" wall tubing. One heavy mother!

That will do it. Hmmmmm you could use that to drag crap around with to.  

 

 

 

 

Wish the newer trucks were that easy to work on. I swapped out a 5.6L in a Nissan Titan a couple weekends ago. Wow what an ordeal that was to do without removing the cab. I can see why everyone that he had gotten a quote from quoted him $1000-$1500 minimum. If I would of known it was going to be that big of a headache I probably would not have touched it.

 

Funny thing. He said it overheated. After I got it out and looked it over I quickly found out why it had overheated. Every freeze plug in the darn thing was blown out. 2 on each side up under the manifolds and the 2 on the back side of both heads. The dumb butt must of had straight water in it. Oil pan was also full of water. Yep not good.
