Default Lift weight V Actual weight

Jason,

Engine deck & transmission doors are hinged at one end, so the effort involved is not lifting the full weight.

A Cent owner could measure the lift weight (as opposed to the actual door weight) with a heavy capacity spring balance, as I think that is the actual weight the old guy needs for Vet Affairs.

Mike

Default VAC dealing for veterans

Those weights won't mean diddly dealing with VAC. They have specific assessment criteria which are much simpler to use and will result in a positive response on a claim. Weights of specific components wont't resonate with adjudicators that have no military experience. any tanker would have done work similar to that listed below and the use of these words (or words to that effect) give the best results at VAC.

"The RMA has set out different criteria for continuous heavy physical activity in respect of the lumbar spine, stating that this means as follows:

"...working in a job that has high energy demands or requires some measure of physical strength, and engagement in any of the following activities on most days:

repetitive or persistent flexion, extension or twisting of the thoracic/lumbar spine; or
frequent manual lifting or carrying of loads of at least 25kg with occasional manual lifting or carrying of loads of at least 35kg; or
frequent manual pushing or pulling of loads of at least 25kg with occasional manual pushing or pulling of loads of at least 35kg.
On most days can be taken to mean at least 51% of days worked in this occupation. In a military setting such occupations may include working in Stores, Construction, or Vehicle Workshops."
