Installing my RB25 in two minutes



To clear the brake pipes on the drivers side the engine needed rotating clockwise quite a bit, which was the hardest part. I think the weight of the 'box was twisting it over. The load-leveller was a worth 10 times what I paid for it for the hassle it saved though.

I had blocked out the memories of re-fitting mine on my own with it hanging off the hoist by old seatbelts.. you made it look easy!

Ha ha tell you what, I don't really want to be doing it again any time soon. At the risk of repeating myself that load-leveller was probably the best 25 quid I've spent on the car! I pulled it out without the box using doubled-up polythene rope from B&Q and that was a pain.

Nice work it was fun fitting a RB26 engine with a RB25 box into a fresh painted Datsun 240z in some places it only cleared by 5mm !!!! had to jack the rear up up high to help it in.

Defo a tasty bit of kit the load-lever worth its weight in gold LOL need to buy one for my engine hoist. Makes a difference having the right tools for the job. Where you buy your load-lever?

Just saw one on the bay and took a chance. Here it is: 750KG ENGINE CHAIN LOAD LEVEL ENGINE HOISTS/CRANES NEW

I cut the 90 degree angle off one of the brackets so it cleared the pipework and bolted up to the head sling bracket.
