Default Forklift Not Included

I'm sure you have heard of batteries not included well this is forklift not included.

I've now done 3 engines like this. Picked up most of the wood from home depots bargin/scrap bin for 6 bucks. If you do something like this be carefull and don't stand under the engine/load. Most important take your time.

I haven't had to load any of the 3 engines yet to go to shows because they don't run but when I do I think they will have larger skids and I will use the tilt feature of the trailer and winch them up and roll them off either with pipe under the skids or build in some removable wheels.

It is amazing how creative we can be when lowering and raising engines. Thanks for sharing

Dave, as young as you are, I figured you'd just grab them and lift them by yourself.

I posted pictures but no text on how it was done

First use wood to build a platform for the back wheels of the pallet jack to roll out on. Keep the front two wheels on the trailer. This should allow the engine to clear the trailer and set down on the cribbing. Make sure this cribbing is wide enough so that your pallet jack will be able to slide in between.

Then move the cribbing from under the wheel to on top of the pallet jack forks. You will only be able to lower the engine 2-4 inches at a time. Remove wood from under the engine, lower the engine back onto the cribbing, remove wood from the pallet jack forks and so on.
