This lifter allows for the 22 1/2 degree (engine) and vertical cylinder pick up by re-positioning the "A" Frame Assembly. This feature allows the machinist to pull a cylinder or power assembly from the engine (22 1/2) and reposition it to vertical without re-rigging lift points. This facilitates placing the used cylinder in a vertical mount shipping container. Cylinders or power assemblies can also be lifted from the shipping container and tilted 22 1/2 degrees to accommodate engine mounting. A hydraulic jack is used to re-position the "A" Frame.
Caution: When removing or installing cylinders on the engine, the forward pin must be installed to assure the maximum safety factor of the design. The jack is used to re-position the "A" Frame only, and the forward pin is used to carry the loads imposed by jockeying the cylinder or power assembly on or off the engine.
