Love the construction of the sleeping "platform." Very cozy. What some guys won't do for love
I take it you picked 'er up at least two days away.
Congratulations on your new engine.
Thanks. It was cheap. Just a 2 foot x 4 foot piece of plywood and a couple of stakes, two screws and a foam pad and the sleeping bag. I actually slept better than at home. Was a little cold at 22 degrees the other night.
It was a three day trip there and should be three back.
The car does slightly list to the pass side. It sure makes for smoother drafting. Not so much buffeting now with the extra weight.
It might be a little bit more weight because the tranny, flywheel, clutch, electric motor, etc. are still attached. Plus a little coolant, full crankcase of oil.... but close.
I've held the doors for someone carrying an Insight transmission to their car and it didn't seem too heavy since it was being carried to the elevator and outside the hotel to his car.
Add the 125 lbs of engine and the flywheel, clutch, electric motor, etc. I figure 225 pounds would be close. Junkyard engines usually have the fluids drained. Yours might be a little on the unusual side if you got yours with oil in it.
