Edward Leedskalnin - Latvian Immigrant, amateur sculptor, author
January 12, 1887 - December 7, 1951
He had moved to North America looking for work in Canada, Texas, and California. In 1919, he moved to Florida City, Florida. Over the next 20 years he would work on his creation, The Coral Castle.
He was very secretive about his work, building only at night by lantern-light. During this time, he quarried and sculpted ove 1,100 short tons of coral. Strangely enough, it appeared as though his construction methods involved little more than tripods, pulleys, levers, and ropes. Even stranger, he never truly told anyone of his construction methods, and remainde very cryptic and vague about them.
This is where the Anti-gravity theories come into play.
During his lifetime, he wrote 3 pamphlets on the topic of Magnetism. Not only that, but he performed many experiments on the subject (electricity too.)
He also once said "I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids, and have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons."
And, upon closer examination, you may notice that atop the tripod(s) he had used, was a mysterious black box. A box that had was never found after his death.

to answer your question..
in a word, no.
he used good ol' fashioned leverage...fulcrums, pulleys, simple physics and one other necessary ingredient -
plain old hard work.
There was a block and tackle on tall poles prominently displayed and, apparently, Edward confided to Henry that this was his ruse to give the impression that this was what he was using to unload the blocks.
Edward had the idea that if he let it be known exactly what he knew, he would be picked up by some government officials and never seen again.
Another peculiar thing was that Henry told me he had visited the quarry where the stones were cut and there were no tailings! Tailings are the stone equivalent of sawdust. When you saw wood, you have sawdust. When you cut stone or metal, you have tailings.
Yes both of the Coral Castle sights were on Magnetic laylines or the same one to be specific. Infact the reason Ed moved his first construction of Coral Castle to the sight in Homestead is because the magnetic layline shifted and he realized this.

Out of curiosity does anyone know if the castle was built on one of those magentic lines that run through the Earth? I know the major pyramid finds in Egypt and South America line up on them.

found his box already, strange it is near the magnetic south pole. as soon as it is recovered we will finally have the secrets of the pyramids.
i am a big fan of ed. he was developing an over unity device. but then big brother visited and destroyed his work, "ed's wheel" was given to us in code. genius is rarely realized in its time. and in this time of big business, genius is supressed.
