Rod if you've made a living splitting 1370's using hyd bottle jacks and a gantry crane then your a better man than I am.
When I split my 1370 I had a gantry crane to remove the tires. I the used a backhoe to set the tire/rims outside. A cherry picker for the rear axle housings. I had a homemade stand on rollers to split the rear end from the tractor. Hoist stands to support the cab. and a ton of blocking to support the engine.
I did it that way because my health is so bad I don't have the strength to wrestle the stuff around anymore
