RMNE is looking for one of these, EMD p/n 8417858 eccentric-type power assembly lifter for C, D and E engines. We have the individual cylinder head and cylinder liner lifter tools.

Perhaps someone on here has a spare or surplus one?

Thanks,

Howard P.

Howard, wouldn't this be an easy thing to fabricate if you had access to measured drawings and a waterjet or plasma cutter?

Be a useful reference to have if anyone else needs or could benefit from one...

EMD distributed good drawings of this tool and instructions of how to manufacture one in File Drawing #232, which was a free addition to many of the MI books they issued in the 1950s.

Here is a better view of this tool:

Make some measurements on your engine and this pic and I bet you could make one yourself in no time, or call them and order the one they offer.
