Ambitious project, Gary!
If you're not a drinker now, you WILL be by the time you finish this project!
Maybe I can help, or at least offer moral support. Oddly enough we just removed the wings from our PV-2 (N7257C - ex Ralph Johnson or RALCO sprayer) here in Arizona last Friday so it can be readied for truck transport. This was the result of many months of on-and-off again work.
There's a lot of work to be done to remove the wings - one has to remove all of the leading edges, wing tips, the flaps, aeilerons, all of the associated cables and wiring from the wing sections to the main electrical box on the engine mount (unless you cut them... but resist the temptation to do so). It's a major effort; the cable runs are in particular difficult to get to. The one has to remove all of the oil and fuel lines between each wing to the center section, and this is a challenge, too, that takes a horrendous amount of time.
Buy yourself several 3/8" and 7/16" wrenches and sockets. You'll loose many of them inside the wings - the 'Poon EATS them but rarely does she poop them out. And Band Aids. You'll need a several for the safety wire and sheet metal cuts and bloodied knuckles from this process.
If your bird was configured for spray systems like ours (she was an ant killer in her most recent roll) then you've gotta get all of that stuff out of the wings, too.
Now that this is addressed, let's get to the meat of the issue - and that's the wing pins. Lockheed used two different type of close-tollerance wing pins on the upper and lower wing section. In all, there are four wing pins that connect the spars between wing section and center section (that and what seems to be a million 5/8" bolts on the upper and lower wing surfaces, along with about 20 "hidden" smaller 7/16" bolts...).
Fortunately these pins are straight and not tapered (like those on the B-17). They must be pulled out of the wings, and for us this was a MAJOR challenge. We had to make some special tooling in order to do the job as there's no easy way to grab the pin shoulders without the possibility of damaging or distoring the pins. When you get to that point I can send you tooling or drawings for the pullers. We made some undersized "safety pins" for the beast, too, once the "mothers" were removed.
We lucked out in that our beast was an Arizona bird for most of its life. I cannot imagine what the pin removal would have been like if this airplane had been around a coastal or wet environment for a number of years.
Lower wing pins came out deceptively easily.... probably because they were well lubed for 60 years with all of the oil and 5606 and fuel that leaks from the systems in this area. Upper ones were the "(insert your own nasty word here)" and took the most time. In the end we used both the special puller on the top pins as well as an undersized drift from the bottom of the wing running all the way to the top to work them out.
According to the manual the outer wing panels weigh 850 pounds each. There's a lifting point in the wing spar roughly just above where the retractable landing light is located. You will need a forklift for this and at least 4 guys to ease the wing off. The balance point may or may not be correct depending on whether or not your outer wing tanks were removed.
Once the wings are removed you'll have to work on the tail plane and take that all apart (we did it the other way first). But that stuff comes apart fairly easily. Ditto prop removal. Now you're at 19' width from e-mount to e-mount and about 12' 6" height. And really, really long. Wide load permit time, but it's better than it was.
The old sprayers down here used to pull the wings and tail and props and drag the plane home with the tailwheel sitting in the back of the pick-up truck bed. If I tried that today no bail bondsman would come to my rescue after ADOT ate me and locked me down in Sheriff Jokes tent city prison.
I guess I need to learn how to post pictures here so ya'll can see what kind of fun we're having down here in PHX on a similar challenge. Our ship was too rough to fly out and this was the only option of airport hopping we had available. All we have to do now is remove that darn "egg" (spray hopper) in the fuselage and she's ready for transport. And oh, yeah, we need to water the money tree, too. Our quote for transport across the Valley here was pushing four grand.... but hell, it's only money.
Glad we've found a kindred soul. Rock on, brother - you can do it. There's success in numbers, right? Long live the ugly 'Poons..... darn awkward looking on the ground but quite striking in the air.
