What is the jacking point to raise the engine/tranny ? I have a flat 12' thick board that covers the oil pan.......do I jack on that ? (bottle jack)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I meant a 2" thick board, NOT 12'.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have tried to send this email probably 12 times. What is going on ?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.
Yes you can just put board on the engine oil pan to jack it up a little.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I have not tried the cowl panel. And, sadly, I won't be able to do it immediately.............it is after 6:00 PM, and I fly out tomorrow morning, being gone for a week +. I did go out and feel around............it seemed that removing the cowl panel will not do the trick, but that will have to wait. ANY OTHER SUGGESTION ?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.
No other suggestions at this time. Removing the cowl panel is how the workshop manual tells you to do it. We'll see how that goes. Thanks.
