ENGINE LIFTING PROCEDURE
CAUTION: The only recommended method for
lifting the 6081 engine is with JDG23 Engine
Lifting Sling and safety approved lifting straps
that come with engine. Use extreme caution
when lifting and NEVER permit any part of the
body to be positioned under an engine being
lifted or suspended.
Lift engine with longitudinal loading on lift sling
and lifting brackets only. Angular loading
greatly reduces lifting capacity of sling and
1. Attach JDG23 Engine Lifting Sling (A, or other suitable
sling) to engine lifting straps (B) and to overhead hoist
on floor crane.
NOTE: If engine does not have lifting straps, they can be
procured through service parts or made locally.

Use of an engine lifting sling (as shown) is the
ONLY APPROVED method for lifting engine.
However, if a sling is not on hand, engine can be
lifted by chain(s) attached to lifting straps and
2. Carefully lift engine to desired location.
