Brief Description:  Engine Day!

Aero Sport Power shipped 24 Aug. Arrived at Vitran Express depot in San Leandro 29 Aug. On 31 Aug, Karl and I rented an engine crane from Cresco, California St., here in Pleasanton, and drove the truck to the depot to pick it up. Forklift guy put it into the bed right over the rear axle (400 lb crate for the ~300 lb engine!). Once home, took apart top and side of the crate, hooked the engine by the lift eye, pumped the bottle jack and up it went. Drove the truck out from under the engine, rolled the crane back into the garage. Crane wouldn't reach the floor, so lowered the pallet to jackstands at one end, dolly on the opposite end. Could then lift the pallet at the jackstand end and lower it to the floor. Same again on the dolly side and the enginer/pallet was safe at zero AGL.
