    Adding a comalong to an engine crane.

    My crane did not give me the range I needed to lower my cab all the way down. I added a comalong and a couple of pullys to the crane to get more range of motion to let the cab all the way down. I added a ˝” boltsto the last adjustment hole and attached the comalong there. I used another longer ˝” bolt to the hook end. I ran this bolt through two pullys and the chrane’s hook. I then strung the comalong’s cable through the pullys and back to itself.
