To maintain balance of the skid while suspended, it is important to position the rear
lifting chain behind the vacuum pump.
12. Attach lift hooks (figure 25, item 1) to skid lifting eyes (figure 25, item 2) as shown. Ensure rear lifting
chain (figure 25, item 3) is positioned behind vacuum pump port (figure 25, item 4).
Figure 25. Attaching Lifting Hooks
The engine/vacuum pump skid is heavy. To prevent injuries, never stand or
reach under a suspended skid. Ensure lifting equipment is of adequate
capacity (2,000 pounds) and operator is trained and approved to use the
equipment. Have dunnage ready and in position to set the skid onto.
13. Lift engine/vacuum pump skid (figure 26, item 1) off the trailer frame and set it upon dunnage (figure
26, item 2) (preferably lengths of 2-inch x 4-inch lumber).
