Quote from: POLARACO
Heavy engine work. . .   Bob. . . .I* have that down to a science now.  I use the winch on my trailer to pull the car out from under the engine.  Then I can use a long pipe to roll the engine hoist around and so on.  I don't work hard, I work smart.  The trailer get's the car high enough, most times, to work under it without a jack too.  Still have to work on my back, but it's nowhere near as bad as working just with jacks.
 
I always try to do the front end work when the front is off the car.  Soooo Much easier.  Even then, I'll pick the car up with the cherry picker and jack stand it accordingly.  Body work is tough outside, but I manage to get the heavy work done.  Saves me allot of money later.
 
 
Heck...I wasn't talking bout you Steve... I was talkin about all the other old farts here...Your profile says yer 21...I believed it. I just figured you lost yer hair early... By the way...keep going at it the smart way. You're an inspiration to us all...

I'd bloody well KILL for a lift!...  Snotts you are very lucky
indeed. It's on my "to do" wish list for "someday". But at least I do
have garages - 1x1car, 1x2 car, 1x1 car- rental and planning a new 2
car for my summer house in VT... well,  "someday".

Thanks, but it's not me that has one, it's Stanley.  I was saying that I was jealous.
 
I, too, would kill for a lift!  Two weeks ago I attempted - in vain - to install headers on my Newport.  That was 4 hours on my back.  Yuck!  Then, when neither the shortys nor the long tube headers would clear my driver's side, it all seemed for nought!
 
At least I got my oil changed while the car was up!  Sheesh!
 
Anyone looking for a set of Sanderson Shortys?  Never been used!!!

I can do minor work like tighten a Philips screw just beyond hand tight  with one of those newfangled "screwdrivers".    Don't ask for anything more from me.  I have neither the knowledge or wearwithall to go under there anymore.  Let Snotty do it I say.  He loves a challenge, and he doesn't give up until it's screwed up beyond repair.  I'm like Jay Leno, pay somebody else to do it, and take all the credit for it by saying, "We did this, and we did that".   Now that the GTX is spewing coolant all over the passenger side floor, it's about time to take a look at that heater core Snotty.

And the emergency brake cable on the Hurst snapped, the wind tore the car cover and the fender turn signals off......there's at least 5 years of Snotty repairs to be done......as soon as he gets done with the Gremlin

Snotty only charges lunch for a brake job......but you have to pay bail, fines and penalties after he's arrested for disorderly conduct at the Chinese buffet.    Snotty insists that the sign says, "all you can eat", but he hasn't had quite enough beef with no broccoli yet.

Snotty, how much are those blue frame lifts you can put in the garage without digging a hole?  Maybe I'll put one in my capacious 6 car garage, if I can dig up the $$$$$.  Boy that would be sweet.  I'd never get Snotty out of my garage, especially since I have a refrigerator out there that's loaded up with Guinness !   Sure hits the spot when its 108 F here in Bako.

No lift needed for Snotty, Polaraco.......Snotty's lost so much weight, he can crawl under Bigfoot while standing up !

   I'm no master mechanic, but I like to do just about anything so I learn more. My good areas are tune ups and routine maintenance. I'll give something my damn best until I drive me or the other person crazy. Over all I just like to learn.

Its not the lying on my back that gets me...Its the getting up/down to get those blessed tools that I keep needing. Snotty, is Fogel at least a "gopher" for ya??...Does he go for the wrench...go for the socket etc...so you don't have to keep gettin out and up and back down and under again? That's a huge help!! Earn your keep Fogel!Earn your keep!   Once in a great while I can get my lovely bride to do it for me...but not too often! You guys that have a buddy system going...Feel blessed..One day I'm going to find a fellow C-lover/fixer in my area...

Agreed Bob.  And, yes, Steve is a big help.  So is my Son when he's around.
