right, my new engine should be arriving next weekend. i don't have an engine crane.
i need some gen on how to move it around, store it, etc... like how can it be lifted off a van and moved into the garage? and can it just be left standing on the sump? i've heard about engine stand thingys... are they expensive to buy?
also, i'm gonna want to clean it up and paint it with that smooth hammerite stuff a bit before it goes in. can i just go round unbolting bits of engine to get to the fiddly bits, and undoing random hoses if they're in the way? or are there rules as to what you should and shouldn't mess about?
