Ok, I know it may not seem like such a huge ordeal, but before I stowed this engine hoist away I wanted to ensure it was working properly. As you saw from a couple of weeks ago, I had added a full bottle of hydraulic oil to the jack so that the jack would stay up & not move with a load on it.
I eventually had to buy more hydraulic fluid and bingo, that did the trick! After a few days of working the jack & bleeding the air out I finally got this lemon to work!
With the drama over, I folded it up and took a pic before it went into the storage closet.
BTW, I used over a third of the hydraulic fluid from the bottle shown in the pic. Now that this is out of the way, I should be able to finish up the shop SOON and get moving on the build. As many of you know, working in a tight space requires a fair amount of organization!
Getting there . . .
