The Cubans help the Italians

Although it is a little early to think about putting the engine back in, my dad enlisted the help of some Cuban artisans on his recent trip to Havana to fabricate a special engine mount that allows for much more angle when installing or removing the powerplant from a Dino.

What these guys lack for in tools they more than make up for in skill as this ingenious adjustable mount proves. Adjustable nuts that adjust the travel of sleeved shackles allows for much greater adjustment than is possible with just a plain tilting engine crane.

After its first test it has left us eager for the re-install and saying 'Muy Bueno' to the design.
