Here are some pics from the recent farmall M engine swap
This method worked very well, the skidloader was a real usefull machine in this operation. I will soon be ready to start the engine.

Just a tad heavier than working with a cub!

That is and under statement. When the front bolster assy. is balanced two men could handle it , however if it were to get away from you it would not be pretty. My skidloader is a Case 1830, 30 hp gas ( with hand controls ) and I can pick up the whole front of the tractor . but the skidloader is just ready to float if you know what I mean. The skidloader is the most useful machine that I own .I have forks and a bucket with teeth. It realy worked well to be able to pick up the bolster/ front end assy. and just back away . As you can see we left the front rails attached, as recommended by a forum member, we did have to loosen the left side rails a bit to clear the governor assy.
