OT Lifting a bus

I am thinking a 20 ton jack should do the trick to pull the tires off of a bus. Somebody here knows if it will work so let me know..

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

Picking up a 1" impact tomorow.

I used a 6' cheater on a 3/4" breaker bar last time I did this and I was hanging off the end on every nut.

With any luck this will work out better.

As usual this will likely cost me more to get prepped than I will make but I will be set up for next time.

I have to cut it in half to get it out of where it is. So it will have to be sitting on two firm supports when the last tortch cut is done.

Once the pieces are on the trailer then remove the wheels.
