    Boss 9'2, Just wondering if I do lose power and need to get it back to shop how would I get it raised and keep it off the ground to limp home
    With our old westerns we could throw it up on a snow bank & adjust chain
    No chain on Boss -- Dumb question? Any tricks? Take center cylinder off?

    Use a ratchet strap to hold it up instead.

    Use the term "short chain" as your keyword in a search here. You'll find hours of reading I promise. :)

    The ONLY time it happened I was close to the shop... just drove it home! :D But yeah, a cumalong or ratchet strap would have done the trick.
