I figured someone would have one.  I could do one  myself, but hate to
re-invent the wheel, but always can improve upon it.  EXCEL spreadsheet would
be perfect.

I have a computer in the garage networked to main server in house, but as you
say - a hand checkoff, between tasks/or beers(separate row with tally check to
indicate job complexity in beers consumed) ;-] Besides - too much grease on
the keyboard:0

But seriously - I have at least three engines being assembled and installed.
This would help keep track of what has been done.

Not meaning to sound sarcastic, I do see where you are coming from... I 
could say, tell me everything on the "list"... I'll put that in column one.

Column 2,3,4 would read, "needs?"  "done"  "installed"

or something like that.

I wouldn't keep track in the computer, for this, I'd print the sheet out 
and fill in the blanks on paper attached to each pile'o'parts.

Because keeping track in one's brain leaves precious little room for
