You are going to find that it is awful handy to be able to move it around easily for all the things you mentioned. Glad to see you are back at it.

As an engine overhaul was obviously needed, the first task was to get it onto an engine stand. I removed the bumper attachment and front end support.

Bolts were inserted in the bolt holes for the head to attach a chain. The cherry picker was hooked into the chain and the engine was unbolted from the center frame and lowered to the floor. With it on the floor, I removed the clutch, pressure plate and flywheel.

Up on the engine stand. Fan and governor removed. That piston looks bad, doesn't it?
