So my car broke a good friend tonight...

pulling the motor out of the bird for a rebuild and some much needed upgrades, and as we are hoisting the motor out...my friend hits the boom lever on the hoist, causing the motor to crush his wrist against the radiator support, the hoist wasn't jacking up. so after thirty seconds of trying to jack the motor off his wrist and freaking out, I got an adrenaline rush and lifted the motor off his hand...I know it wasn't my fault, but damn I feel bad about it.


BTW, it did actually break his wrist, he goes in for surgery in the morning...

hopefully your friend gets better, that's why i feel more comfortable using my chain hoist to pull motors, if it lets go it won't just drop like that. the gear reduction gives at least another half second before it completely unloads, although that won't help much if the chain snaps. lol, ultimately you just need to keep everything out from underneath whatever is being supported, good luck with pulling the engine, and don't try to do it alone either, later'z.

i use some pretty heavy gloves when dealing with trannies, after cutting yourself 50 times you tend to learn better ways of doing things, i doubt there is any other piece on the car that has as many razor sharp jagged edges, lol.

My uncle left the top 2 sections of his right index finger in a glove after dropping an engine on his hand.
