Re: Engine hoist load leveller

When I took my engine out I used the hoist shown in previous posts and a load leveller.

Re: Engine hoist load leveller

@jeremy - I bet you are talking about a spigot bush?!
I am so paranoid about mine, that although it needs soaking in oil, it’s already taped in position just so that I don’t forget it!

I used tyre inner tube rubber for the seals and a rubber hammer to seat the frames properly.

Trim the excess rubber using a scalpel after the frames are fixed.
Thanks Stu, very useful information!
