Serious repair of the engine of a car is now expensive. So many motorists, having the necessary knowledge and experience, ready to take on it yourself. But do not presume that since this repair the engine from the vehicle is required to remove and after repair reinstall. Manually, without the right lifting equipment, it is impossible to do. However, you can find a way out of any situation. And those motorists who own a garage, I would advise you to take advantage of my experience. To relieve the engine of “Zaporozhets” I use in my garage self-locking worm gear.
Heard that the experts do not recommend to use such a mechanism as the lifting, saying that his worm pair quickly becomes loose and ceases to hold the load. Do not argue, especially in the case when loads pick up, say, daily. But the engine is the same car not every day you get to shoot! So at my age “plows” the strength of this pair, I think, is quite enough.
How is the lift?
In the side wall of the garage, I was imbedded ends of the two steel area 75x75x8 mm so that under them was located in the hood “Zaporozhets”. On shelf angles mounted steel plate 10 mm thick with worm reducer (from decommissioned machine tools) attached to it with eight M8 bolts. Slab with corners not connected, which to some extent allows you to adjust its position over the motor vehicle.
