Smile Mccormick Deering " M" Lifting with Harbor Freight hoist

Here is a video I shot today showing how I handle my McCormick Deering "M" engine when I have to work on it off the truck.

I used a tow strap to make my lifting harnesses and hook them to my Harbor Freight 1300# lift that is on a trolley in my barn.

Default Re: Mccormick Deering " M" Lifting with Harbor Freight hoist

That is a Very Improper way to lift an engine! NEVER lift an engine by attaching straps to the top of the flywheels. As the engine is lifted, pressure will tend to pull the tops of the flywheels inward. You can very easily bend your crankshaft this way. Think about it!

The correct way is to run a piece of pipe between the flywheel spokes and attach your lifting strap to the pipe between the engine block and the pipe, on each side. The piece of pipe applies pressure evenly to the flywheels, with only an upward pressure on them.

It would be a shame to bend the crank on that nice engine!
