Re: replacing engine, cherry picker strong enough?

What kind of engine are we talking about? If your bus is a gasser then a regular cherry picker will lift it, but may not be able to lift it high enough. If you are talking a big Detroit Diesel then it won't do it. Something in between like a 5.9 Cummins or something like it MIGHT work...
