Also, the frame should have an original marking system, take note of it, and mark it with a system you are familiar with.

Hi,

I really like KSU Chainsaw's post and will also again push the get mechanical help advice.  In my first post I was thinking a big manlift would be sufficient only because it appears your timbers don't start getting big untill you get toward the bottom.  IN my head I can see rigging a gin pole of some kind, Not very long, maybe an automotive engine hoist strapped to the deck, so you can connect a timber and work work it free while working off the safety of a platform.  Even if you only rented it for the weekend, you could probably get all the high stuff done and finish up later with a tractor/loader.  Being able to control the platfrom from up high will really speed you along.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks so much for all the wonderful responses. Fortunately, I have access to an 18-ton crane and an aerial lift truck, so this should make the task of disassembly much easier than anticipated.

Craig Roost: I just may take you up on your offer. Iíll e-mail you and see if we can work out the details.

Thanks again guys! This is truly an awesome web site.

Mike D.
