Can you lay down some plywood and push it to the front hanging from an engine hoist?

I'm 26 hours into this project started last night getting all the accy 's and BS out of the way. By noon today the engine was out thru the side door. I got a big hand from Jhnyquest and Curbdog and we laid the smack down on the removal / install. plywood floor and two cherry pickers, one with a monster extension, and everythingthing came in and out nicely. Still a few loose ends but it should run tomorrow

Cudos on the milestone.

no corvair driveline in it, Dodge BB monster, either 400 or something bigger, I have never opened the hood , plan is to chop off at the front side windows, remove the total front end, including gas tanks, propane tank and all drivetrain, and fab a trailer tung to the front, end up with a 15 foot travel trailer, after I install a 2nd axle under it.

Call me Crazy, just don't call me Cerial
