moving an engine with a chain and car
my freinds and i are attempting to reach the turbo on the Exhaust pipe on the bottom of the car without the hood (dodge shadow turbo the car had been junked because of the trans and sat at a local junkyard and we were given permission to get the turbo from it... "if you can get it off you can have it") we assumed that meant do what you have to do to get it off... so we called up our friend with the honda prelude and wrapped a chain around the engine and then to the back of the honda and yanked it alot for a while..... the jigsaw that my friend brought to cut the pipe ended up with a bent blade so the pipe was never cut all the way so yanking the engine resulted in slowly but surely tearing the pipe (the friend in the basketball shorts wanted the turbo for his car)
