Engine Puller, Work Stand Combo"I wanted something that would both pull engines and serve as a rotating work stand," says Homer Hartling, Rockwell City, Iowa.
The space-saving engine puller and work stand combo pulls the engine in a conventional manner at the end of the boom and then transfers it to a rotating mounting bracket that's handy for all types of engine rebuilding. "I made the lift arm out of a piece of heavy track with a heavy-duty trolley in it which can be locked in different positions. Once the engine is removed, I let the lift arm down until it is level, unlock the trolley, roll the engine back to the mounting bracket, lock the trolley and raise or lower the lift arm to line up the engine with the mounting bracket, and bolt it on. The lift arm can then be unhooked and either raised or removed," says Hartling, who would like to find a manufacturer for the new shop accessory.
