Rex

Please be careful pulling that rig off of your truck. By roping that engine up to a tree and pulling it off it could cause the engine to fire when it hits the ground. If that happens you have to get that truck into high gear fast or the engine will likely run you over flat. Now if this happens the engine now orphaned will have to be adopted so please keep any extra parts like the oilers and hot tube somewhere in clear sight.

Safety First!

If you can hit 50 mph backwards and nail the breaks the engine will come off in no time flat

Well Rex I notice you have all of your Ohio buddies helping you with ideas. Do you think they have any brainy ideas to help you out or are they just waiting to get the engine from you? Dick in the cool but warmer than has been, Finger Lake region of NY.

I think you should get some skids under the engine and get her running.
