Needing a permit to build a buck hoist depends on where you are building it. Only a few states in the US require you to get a permit and the elevator to be inspected. Indiana, Michigan, Arkansas, Washington, Nevada, North Carolina, California all require you to get a permit.

Collect as many Banana Bucks as you can. The Minion
with the most Banana Bucks at the end wins...
and becomes Gru's favorite Minion!
1. Build your game arena.
• Press out the game track from the sheet.
• Keep the game arena inside the game box.
• Attach the clips to the box as shown.
• Slot game track between the clips.
2. Fix Nom Nom Tom (the Minion with
the banana) on top of the Spinner Pod.
1. Each choose a Minion
token and place it on GO.
2. Choose one player to be
banker. The banker's in charge
of Banana Bucks and property
cards, but can still play too!
3. Banker, deal out the Banana Bucks:
• 2-player game: give each player A20
• 3-player game: give each player A18
• 4-player game: give each player A15
4. Shuffle and put the Chance cards in a
face-down pile at the side of the gameboard.
5. The youngest player starts. Play then continues left.
1. Spin the pod and move your Minion
token that number of spaces.
2. Where did you land? If you land on:
If no one owns it, you must buy it! Pay the
bank the amount shown on the space and take
the matching property card. Plus, take a FREE
CUPCAKE and put it on the space right away!
If another player owns it, pay them the rent
amount shown on the matching property card.
If you own it, don't do anything!
3. That's it! Now it's the next player's turn.
Hold the Spinner Pod
by the Minion and...
SPIN! Wherever the
banana lands -
that's your spin!
If you buy the second property space of the
same color, you own the pair!
Return the cupcake
and put an ice-cream
sundae across the
spaces. Now you can
charge more rent on
both of them!
The amount is shown on the matching
property card.
Your Spin is 2!
Rent Value with Cupcake
Rent Value with Sundae
4 Minion Tokens, Spinner Pod with Nom Nom Tom Minion, Game Track,
Game Tray (Plus 2 Clips), 16 Cupcake Tokens, 8 Ice-cream Sundae Tokens,
16 Property Cards, 16 Chance Cards, Banana Bucks.
If you can't afford to pay rent, to buy a property you land on, or to pay a Chance card fee then it's GAME OVER!
The player with the most Banana Bucks WINS and is Gru's favorite Minion!
When you pass or land on GO, collect A2
Banana Bucks from the bank.
Take the top Chance card and follow the
instructions. Put the card to the bottom of the
pile when you're done.
You are JUST VISITING if you land here on your roll.
Go straight to jail! At the start of your next turn,
pay A1 (to get out of jail) or use your Bust Out
of Jail Free card if you have one. Then spin and
move as normal.
Don't do anything - just take a break!

I have an 88 Wrangler. Trying to replace catalytic converter myself. Does this ginormous skid plate actually hold up the transmission? I need to remove it to get to the catalytic converter but i'm

Skid plates would not be holding up the transmission there should be mounts with rubber inserts mounted to the frame that hold up engine and transmission. If the mounts have gone bad it the engine and/or transmission could have sagged down which would cause it to possibly touch the heat shield. For your own safety I would suggest to put a jack stand undneath the transmission or reenforced part of engine or rent and engine hoist from your local auto parts store and hook it up to the top of the engine to hold the weight of the engine. Renting an engine hoist is cheaper than a hospital trip.

Can i possibly pull a 3.4 out the top from a 2001 olds sillouette van, i pulled one from a 2003 dodge caravan, it was tough but it worked. can it also be done in the olds. i dont have a hoist or accsess to...

Its going be tough to pull out anything other than a small 4 cylinder without a hoist. You could use a comealong. Its like a small hoist, has a chain and a lever you can use to lift the engine. It has a hook on it to allow you to attach it to something.

But to be able to use it you need to put the car underneath something that is sturdy enough to support the weight of the engine, like a large limb on a tree or a metal frame of a garage or something like that.
And you will need a sturdy chain. The bigger the better. Attach the chain to your engine lift hooks.
Get some grade 8 screws,nuts and washers from home depot. Get the largest diameter screws that will fit through the links of the chain. Make a loop on each end of the chain by putting the screws through links and tightening the nuts on the screws. Put the loops you made on the engine lift hooks. Attach the come along to the tree or whatever you can find thats sturdy enough to support the weight of the engine with another chain. Then lift the engine out.

you will have to detach the ac compressor and power steering pump and tie them out of the way with pieces of wire. That way you wont have to discharge the ac system or drain the power steering fluid. Remove coolant hoses and fuel lines. And remove the half shafts for front wheel drive. Then detach the motor mounts/transmission mounts. Of course, theres a lot of other stuff you need to detach, but im sure you know that already.

You can rent engine hoists for like $35 a day from a Taylor Rental or other equipment rental
company. Rent it one day and take it back and rent it another day when you are ready to
put the engine or another engine back in.

Rear seal on motor leaking

well you have a cost/benefit analysis to do. is it worth fixing the seal, given the age and condition of the car and the expense of getting to and replacing the seal? you are going to have to separate the engine from the transmission, remove the flywheel or ring gear to get at the seal. this may require removing the tranny on a RWD vehicle or perhaps pulling the whole engine/tranny out of a FWD car.

if it is worth fixing then buy a CD repair manual on eBay for about 10 bucks, get a buddy and some beer and set aside a weekend. rent an engine hoist.

aside from lucas additives which do not work anyway, there is no magic fix for this.

96 grand prix slipping transmission

Once it starts slipping in all gears it needs a kit. You need a hoist to get the thing out and back in. If you are looking for a low buck fix many junkyards will sell you a used one and put it in. They are almost always cheaper than a "Transmission Shop". If you have the tools and want to do it yourself buy a service manual for the car from eBay or Amazon or a former Pontiac dealer and have at it. It's not all that difficult with a hoist but it is still along day.

Transmission removal

This is a big complex problem, probably not suited for the small space here. However,

Get a Chilton's book on your year and model. That will have a step by step section to do this.

In general,

Put car up on very sturdy stand or lift. Always have a friend don't do alone. It's got to be high enough to allow the transmission to slide out underneath

On bolt both ends of drive shaft - differential end and transmission end.

Remove Drive shaft set aside.

Use some 4 X 4 and 2 X 4's and block up the engine at the rear.

You will need a transmission hoist - can rent these

Take off speed cable
Take off shifting cable and level mechanisms

Loosen all the transmission bolts from under the hood facing forward on the bell housing.

Put transmssion hoist under transmission and lift slightly.

Undo rest of bolts.

Move tranmission back about three inches

Lower stand

Slide out.

Be very careful - heavy things here, and dont' forget to get the repair book first.

This is only about $1200 fix at a transmission shop - that may be better.
