transporting a 6V92
Wed Mar 25, 2009 7:55 am


Hi guys,well time to get busy planning again(woo Hoo!)Thanks to Dave St John ,who we were fortunate to have spent some time with last Saturday while they were here in Vegas,we all had a great time and got to know each other a little better,thanks for the lunch you guys ,next time it's on us.Once again ,we are trying to get a handle on picking up the 6v92 Dave has in Copeland, KS.Our silverado is a half ton ,so the engine will have to go on a trailer,is there any advice or pre cautions I should take in tying this 2,000 lb engine down to the trailer so it rides right and stays put for the trip back to boulder city?We are very exited at the thought of finnally moving foward (agin) with our Eagle.thanks in advance.Van

P.S. WHOO HOO! :D

Van, if the engine has the Eagle cradle it going to be simple 4 4x4's about 1 ft long each under each corner chain to the lifting brackets on the heads (4) pull each direction and haul a** by the way I have some new chains a guy just gave me you can use LOL

Thanks Cliff,feel kinda stupid asking things like this ,its not the biggest thing I've hauled LOL,by far.Guess I'm getting overly exited is all .Working on Doyle s suspension the other week was like a shot in the arm,always loved doing it ,the bigger the more enjoyment it gives me ,I miss it.

The M-1(family)main battle tank was my specialty in the army as was depot level repair on a wide variety of track and wheeled vehicle systems including,turret as well as fire control systems repair.Ever since I left the military I've had this void inside (not the spiritual kind,that is filled) I could not fill,tried my hand at building one off custom bikes,then hot rods ,still not a bad hobby and had a ton of good times doin it.Heck I even Lost my mind for a while and took on flying and grabbed a spot in a paint and body shop at N.las vegas air port in the paint and body person ,not bad either,But I was not inspired .Then came the Eagle ,now thats some thing I could sink my teeth into,helping you guys meet your challenge was probably the most fulfilling thing I had done since working on the big guns,thanks by the way,you guys,for letting me help.A heavy metal junkie,in heaven once more! :D

I've got a couple extra rolls of duct tape if you need it. That stuff can handle anything!

Van, my trailer has electric brakes so if you don't have a controller on your pickup you need to get one for the brakes

I'll look in to it ,thanks.Dale ,I'd save the "Kintucky Chrome" for closing in your eagle like Steve Suggested,just incase the steel industries go broke(after gov't take over,lol),might have to use you glass panels instead. :shock: :lol:
