    Default Engine is back in

    Engine is back in-d-engine-.jpg
    Engine crane didn't have the reach from the front to get the engine all the way back?
    So had to swing it around to the side. Have I got a weener of an engine crane? surely you don''t take off the'front bumper?
    Anyhow engine now back home on the mounts.

    Wow ... why on earth didn't you remove the bumpers and panels so they didn't get damaged I've never seen that before! It's only about 10minutes work and there off and out of the way!

    To my way of thinking more chance of them getting damaged stacking them up somewhere in the garage (?) and one less job to do at the end! I'm cutting down my work load.

    Apart from removing the front bumper, i am just amazed that you did the job without removing the front guards!! 30 mins extra work would have saved more than than that with improved access. Would also keep the guards at a safe distance.

    If you had visited a Citroen workshop when they worked on these cars it was the norm to do this for anything other than a minor service.

    You found an easy work around putting the crane at the side, but the bumper would have also been a simple job to remove as these cars really are just big model kit.

    Yes, that is the lads at Citco in Glebe changing an oil filter in 1972. I am not sure where Citroen got a reputation for expensive maintenance.

    fair dinkum! I thought I was terminated in the great crash though Michael... yes definitely store your guards as far away as possible, I am living proof of the damage they can incur, knocked over my freshly painted right hand one, god knows how long it will take to tease out and respray.... the swearing was monumental.

    If I stored the guards in the dining room, they might get mixed up with the other disassembled D in there!

    It's only 10minutes work to remove guards and bumper ..... And makes it so much easier to work around. You can sit on the top of the tires while your working rather than leaning over those big fragile panels.

    Yes I would have done that! For some reason I love removing panels so I can admire how good they were designed!
