Engine Jack

Discussion in 'Mech Tech' started by matty, Dec 2, 2021.

  1. I’ve had the engine out a few times over the years normally using the balancing on a Jack and dragging method.

    I’ve got to remove it again over Christmas and
    I see quite a few of you use motorbike jacks any recommendations for a good cheep easy one.
     
  2. I've got one you can borrow over the festive period Matt. Just come pick it up.

  3. Thats amazing thank you I will message you when I definitely know when I’m doing it as I need to finish fitting some garage doors first, hopefully that will be this weekend then I’m off over Christmas to do the engine.
     
  4. Not a problem, let me know.
     
  5. now that's sorted can we start posting new threads called 'Gearbox Bob' or 'Captain Jack'?

    please don't! :)

  10. A statistic. One of my friends once asked somebody they knew how their tuned-up Subaru owning son was getting on ..and discovered it fell on him and he died.

  14. Am I the only one who keeps revisiting this thread in the hope there might actually be a recommendation for an engine/motorcycle Jack? You know, thread content that's actually relevant to the title :rolleyes:

  15. I think you’re asking a bit much there, this is TLB after all

    However this is mine, had it about 5 years removed lots of engines and boxes with it, got it off Ebay
    does the job, knowing me it was almost certainly under £100

    I nearly bought one of these but I got worried about merrily lowering it and crunching something as the hydraulic cylinder bit rises up...
     
  17. Bolt some 3/4 ply board on for extra stability .
