A Carrier for the Engine

by on May.10, 2014, under Engine

Although it’s a small thing, I did get something done towards the project. A while ago, I bought a small mover’s dolly to make a carrier for the engine so that I can easily move it around and get it out of the way when I need space. It cost me $12 at Harbor Freight. I made a small box out of scrap 2x4’s that is about the size of the bottom of the engine casing and attached it to the dolly. I then placed the engine on the dolly. Like I said, it’s a small thing, but it is so nice being able to wheel the engine around the garage without having to lift it. I just need to take a router and remove enough wood along the sides next to the heat exchangers so that it will sit flat and not be raised on one side.
