Tuesday diesel engine removal update

The bit I expected to be tricky has been.

The rusty bolts on the coupling between gearbox and propeller shaft wouldn’t undo. Angle grinder to the rescue.

So far only managed to undo 1 of 4 engine mount bolts as again very rusty. Currently soaking in wd40 but might need to cut them.

The gantry to lift is finished (going to attach lifting lines before cutting engine mount bolts).
