We also bought a wrecker in anticipation (You might have seen a snap shot of it in the EG introduction post)
It was in need of more than a little band-aid.
In about an hour we had the motor ready to come out – funny how much work it takes to get a smashed up car ready.
Some sections need a little persuasion.
Five hours later we have it transplanted, coolant (sorry, no pictures of the motor with the rad) topped up and ready for a drive. Not too bad for just 2 guys and a cherry picker. The geeky part, is that we timed timed our selves. The next motor transplant we’re aiming for under 4 hours.
Things we learned:
- Sledge Hammer is your friend
- Cutting wheel also a good friend
- When things get tough use a van
- Seriously – the van is an awesome extractor of parts
When all else fails – torch it
