It'll be fine, the engine is definitely less than 200kg with flywheel, carbs
and starter etc, about 185kg if my memory serves me right.....

On my engine crane I sometimes use an old set of lifting chains. I've
happily lifted a 110 engine and box with 'em, also lifted the whole front of
the 110.

On examination, I find that the ring in the middle is stamped
"S.W.L. 13 cwt" Ooops - I suppose that could be a rating for a single chain
- seems very low, given the size of chain, for both together. Mind, never
showed any sign of failing. But perhaps I ought to buy a new, bigger set -
the crane is rated to 2T...
