Just realized that I could use some of these methods to separate my 1000 engine from it's frame so that I can powder coat the frame. I have the tools, material and access to a humongous oven.
I like the jack ideas. Thinking now, do I want to remove the engine away from the frame, or the frame away from the engine?
What's best, easier, less destructive on paint and parts?
Balance and move the engine or drag away the frame?
Oh yeah, they got to go back together too.
