Wow!

To take an engine out, the fuselage is first set horizontally for wing removal, then a further 1.5 degrees so the engine is level. The front nozzles usually remain attached to the airframe (there are short sleeves connecting them to the engine which are removed) whereas the rear nozzles must be removed, along with the water tank which is normally squeezed in between the bulkhead and the "elephant's bum" duct at the aft of the engine. The change unit would normally be supplied bare - i.e. without the Gts/apu and main generator which are taken from the outgoing unit. Ancillary drive pads, intake, exhausts etc come fitted with red covers.

You have built a spare engine, right? :winkgrin:

Keep up the tremendous work, the end is in sight!!

Wow! What detail!

Just for your interest rather than as a suggestion to change anything:

The fuselage is jacket to horizontal prior to wing removal. The access panels forward of the wing are removed, including the longitudinal spine.

There are 4 lifting points for the wing - the rears in the position you have shown them and the fronts are simlarly spaced. The lifting points correspond with the point of attachment of wing to fuselage.

Once the wing is removed, the aft of the fuselage is jacked up again - iirc by 1.5 degrees to allow for the angle of the installed engine. The rear nozzles are removed but I believe the front ones are usually only disconnected from the flange on the engine plenum. The engine is attached via trunnions adjacent to the fire bulkhead and brackets aft of the rear nozzle flanges. Engine ancillaries are transferred over to the Engine Change Unit.

Cheers!

:thumbsup: thank´s my friend....Look how interesting this photo, Harrier wing removal, regarding the engine covers already adjusted the problem, thanks to divide the master knowledge.
