Ok then, I won't tell you that. Sorry, but it is a beast to replace. Flywheel cover has to come off and no way to do all this unless engine is unbolted & at least lifted at angle. May as well set engine off.

Sorry i haven't found any short cuts. Had to unbolt the hood, unhook the mule, unbolt the motor and pick up the engine and slide it out also unhook all electric and choke and throttle cable. to me it is big pain in the but.

That is the disadvantage of many of the opposed twin cylinders. Power is improved over the singles but starter is a pain to service.

Look at it this way, you can clean up all the areas that you couldn't before with the engine in :D

Good point, George. Hey, I never would have learned to rebuild an engine if I hadn't blown one up.
