Hi Guys Just a quick update on our projects at the farm. On Sat. July 2nd we will be lifting the big F-M engine onto its foundation. We have just about everything ready to go and are hoping Georges Big 80D Northwest will be up to the task of lifting and moving 22 tons about 150 feet across a road and onto it permanent foundation. We will be doing the lift after 10:00 so if your in the area your welcome to stop and watch the fun. We will be filming it all and posted next week. Ed B

I arrived at the farm yesterday for a meeting to find the "boys" setting up for the lift. Actually, Ed needed the engine a few inches higher so he could get under it and wire brush the rust off of the intake air chamber.

It was good to get in a 'test lift' anyway, and make any adjustments. All we needed to do was add an extra set of shackles to the non-flywheel side of the engine to level the load. I think we'll add another set for the Saturday lift which will feature a hotdog and hamburger cookout afterward!

George Jarvis and his 80D moved the engine across the road and onto its pad with few problems, Once it was in the air about 18 inches off the ground he was able to walk it right over to the foundation. The Fairbanks is now resting on 2X4's on each end waiting for the final shimming and grouting job. It will be shimmed level about 11/2 inches above the block. Once it is in place the next step is to mount and align the generator. The 6 bolts lined up perfectly just the way we hoped they would. Sorry no pics yet but will post a whole set when I get them resized. Ed B

a couple of pictures of the Fairbanks in its new home. The move went well, all things considered, with the 80D able to walk the load over to the foundation. One strand on the hoist cable parted at some point during the move, and has been removed. a replacement cable will be on it this week (I hope, because i need this crane to set 5 beams 6" X 12" X 48' long for the building

Haha, I just opened up this thread to post that video, but it looks like you beat me to it Art!

Big thanks to Lauren for helping film the majority of that video while i was helping with the engine move.

A few pics of the move last Saturday. Pic No. 1 this one is of the initial lift up off the blocks it has been sitting on for 11 years. From this lift and swing George determined if he could safely walk with the engine. Pic No 2 shows Craig holding one of the 4 guide ropes attached to the engine. Pic No 3 is Dave Chester using rope to pull unit straight with the crane base. Last Pic is the crane easily walking the engine across the road to its new home. The trip took about 20 minutes but the hard part was still to come.
