I would figure the backhoe would have to much movement at one time ,be kinda jerky?
If your good at backhoes like gerry , it piece a cake. gerry took a blower motor out of mikes 38sonic yesterday he had that backhoe going sideways, and up and down it had a slide arm in front of the bucket w2hich is cool and he moved it a just anuff to take preasure off the motor mounts thats a 1/8th of a inch, once again jerry the man. that was a complete motor with headers still on!!!!!

Still have some rigging to do and final finnishes, like the lines to the remote oil filter hit the flame arrestor, didnt expect that.





The hoe really was better then the crane. You had to deal with the slack and wind with the crane, always fighting with the cable. With the hoe it was just tiny movements, with an oporator doing this for 20 years it helps

Had me wondering, what do you use to pull your engines?


i played it safe. Didnt want to overload anything

That's pretty creative, but a regular engine crane in the garage always worked for me. I wouldn't want any of my boats near that scene!

Ive used front end loaders, backhoes, trachoes, and forklifts. A forklift with a chain hoist was by far the smoothest.

I have used forklifts, bridge cranes, and wreckers.

I prefer to look at it that most people under-do things.
