Motor removal

Postby Brodalick » Fri Mar 30, 2018 5:09 pm

Getting ready to pull the engine and do engine work. Does anyone have pics of what they used or built to support the 3 pieces? I do have access to a cherry picker and a motor stand. Do you think the steering shaft would support the front end if it were tied up to the beam of my shop and the front end remained on the tires? If I use the motor stand for the motor and the cherry picker , I still need to come up with an idea for the third piece.

IMO the front bolster assy is important to protect the radiator in case something gets out of hand. Repacement cost about $225-$250. A support for the torque tube/bell housing can be made and attached where the implement holes are. Several types have been posted with pictures, may even be in the "HOW TO". Try the search function, top right corner of this page. Wedge the front axle before you start loosening things up.

Here are a couple of pics of what I made up to use. The one n front I put a lawn-mower wheel on the bottom to roll it aropund, but it would not take the weight. I second the warning on the front end . It cost me a radiator!

Hi,
Below is the Cub service manual. I would read the sections for the engine, if you are rebuilding the engine, and splitting the tractor, and whatever else you are doing that is in the manual. :)

I've seen people use those trailer jacks that you can buy at places like Harbor Frieght https://www.harborfreight.com/1500-lb-capacity-dual-wheel-swing-back-boat-trailer-jack-69779.html. I also saw another wooden one yesterday. I can't remember if I saw it on the forum or on Facebook. Regardless, his design was to use 2 2x4s connected to implement attachment holes. The 2x4s were gusseted together with 3/4 plywood to stabilize them and also spread the load wider along the floor. If I remember where I saw it I will post a link.

I like motorcycle lifts. the do a nice job safely supporting the sections. I have found used ones available locally.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!
