The Good Bad (no ugly yet though)

The good:
Since I'm doing my install solo, needed to come up a way to get the blower onto the engine(damn thing is HEAVY). I had already come to the conclusion that I couldn't reach out with that thing and drop it on without breaking something or potentially tearing the gaskets, so I came up with the novel Idea to just slide it into place. Used a 2x4 resting on the back of the engine and just lifted the blower on the board at the front of the engine(easy reach), slid the blower back as far as I could once on the board, then slowly worked the board from out from underneath the blower sliding the board forward. Drop right into place.

The bad:
Don't know where my head was at, but I read instructions and missed that the torque was in in/lbs and not ft/lbs. Yup, snap. Take blower off, tap out busted bolt, put blower back on, but at a stand still until I can get a replacement bolt. Homedepot, don't fail me now.
