Dayum! I thought that I knew how to move stuff. That's impressive as Hell. Did you check out his Web site <http://www.theforgottentechnology.com/ ?

What!? You mean it wasn't aliens with anti-gravity rays? Next you'll be telling us that the ancient Egyptians understood the principles of rollers, pulleys, and leverage.

Recent findings are that they understood how to make and pour concrete.

Considering that the last Pharaoh was doing some guy named Caesar and the Romans most assuredly knew concrete (knew something we don't apparently if the longevity of their concrete structures vs ours is any indicator) it seems very likely that the Egyptians if they didn't know before picked it up from the Romans.

That's just too far fetched. I'm sticking with the alien theory.

I did not read most of the other posts but this is dangerous, no question about it. However, I used to start my neighbors concrete mixer - belt driven - by rotating the drum and then flipping the switch. Otherwise the motor just hummed. It would run empty but this method was necessary when components where in the drum. Marc

Not really. The early scene shows the motor, the rotor clearly has a centrifugal switch built in. He just has a bit of dirt/sawdust in the start switch contacts. If he finds them, and burnishes them, like by rubbing with a strip of paper, it all starts working like new. It isn't a capacitor-start motor.
As for the bad bearing, perhaps that's a misattribution of dried out grease, which can be fixed with solvent/heat and new grease).
