I also like these play-by-plays with a little built-in suspense... :worried:

Re: %GcBPmHkBZ

Progress so far:

it lifts okay, mast stays straight, rigging seems fine. Once we gave the awkward cluster of pulleys a bit more slack to hang from they arranged themselves well enough to pull pretty straight.

Problem 1:
It's still hard to hoist up, so it's on a winch - but the force of this winch pulls the motor too far back (you can see it pulling in the bottom left corner of the second photo)

Problem 2:
the engine started to roll over because one of the lines slipped

Problem 3 (solved?):
I realised it wouldn't haul it high enough, so had to raise the main halyard higher and just lengthen the block and tackle

I never knew that the cylinders were actually a separate part of engines. brilliant... i'm much less afraid of doing my own rebuild now.

thanks very much for posting this :)
