Engine installation

Postby WolfMaiden1981 on October 24th, 2011, 11:40 am

Hey peeps. I need help on a subject for my book. Has anyone here ever worked in a car factory back in the day? If not, does anyone know how the engines were installed? The cars coming down the assembly line? Engines being hauled by a chain or on a hoist? I need details and names of tools and equipment used. If anyone knows of any videos of engine installation at a car factory, please let me know. Thanks

Hi, When I was a Teenager in the mid 80's I worked Security at the GM Plant in Tarrytown, NY and I remember watching the Assembly line procedures. It was pretty cool. The vehicles were mounted on special machines on the Assembly Lines and once it came to the motor/trans install, the cars were above and then lowered down over the drivetrain, then bolted up to chassis. Then the cars were sent further down the line for the rest of Parts and Interior. Hope this helps, Joe JOEC>

So the car frame was lowered onto the engine or something close to that? Bummer...for my book I need to find a way for the engine to fall on the victim while being installed. Hmmm. Wonder how i can pull thta off....

Would the car/frame be heavy enough to crush him? If so, then yes I could do that...Cuz the blood will be seeping into the engine and that's how it becomes possessed.

So say the worker is working on the engine (i'm assuming by pic here that the engine and stuff is already installed on frame and stuff) when the car part above falls on him and crushes him? Would that work?

Good posting Strech, somewhere on my PC I have a video but I haven't found it yet, I have looked all over and under it but haven't found out yet. Yes the drive train is put in before the body is on.

Yes the car body would certainly be heavy enough [popcorn] look what Christine's hood did at the beginning of the movie :twisted:
