Engine Removal


This week-end I spent almost entirely working on the task of removing the Engine from its compartment and putting it on a stand in the saloon. I had been lying awake nights for about two weeks prior worrying and figuring out the best way to build the apparatus, so I am glad to have the experience behind me.
My beam trolley design worked out great and the trolley and chain block that I borrowed from my friend Eric made the job of lifting and moving "Mr. Perkins" very easy. I even had some time this week-end for laminating some ribs in. I have more of that to look forward to for next week.
