The combination of young guys and a bar is often not good for productivity. No wonder it took so many of you.
If I recall correctly, it took 4 guys - 3 of them geezers - and a little equipment to remove the (1465 lb) EFM 900 boiler head from the basement of our old house. And the young guy was only there because he could get up after bending down to move the rolling pipes. Of course, since I was one of the geezers, there's always the chance I'm not recalling correctly...
My brother Steven was the smart one...he set the two pallets of parts in the cellar with an excavator before they framed the house.
