When I removed the engine on a 1200 I set the motor on wooden blocks. Unbolted the engine and pulled the frame to the side.

Of course nearly everything else was already off the frame so it was light.

The LORD is my light and my salvation--so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

The electrical connections don't need to be unplugged, nor do the fuel lines.
Really it's not a lot less work than just pulling the engine out but doesn't require a second person.
Yeah ..... I can see that. Maybe "build" a platform up under it?

I did a R&R of the stator back in the October 1997 alone in evenings one week after work. Used a piece of 1/2" plywood cut to same size as bottom of motor, added ribs on top side to interlock with cooling fins, etc of engine to "lock" it in place in use when weight applied so engine would not slide off plywood .... then in approximate center on bottom of plywood, I attached a second piece of 1/2" plywood with a round hole cut in center that was a little bigger than the lifting foot or plate on my 1.5 ton small floor jack. Used wood glue and a few brads. With it, when time came, I was able to guide, jack, the jack with one hand and simply balance the engine with the other. "Center" turned out to pretty near "center of balance".

Rolled away and eased down onto two wood blocks.

Reverse to put back.

Related thoughts,


Just realized that I could use some of these methods to separate my 1000 engine from it's frame so that I can powder coat the frame. I have the tools, material and access to a humongous oven.


I like the jack ideas. Thinking now, do I want to remove the engine away from the frame, or the frame away from the engine?


What's best, easier, less destructive on paint and parts?


Balance and move the engine or drag away the frame?


Oh yeah, they got to go back together too.

If you are stripping the frame down anyway block the engine up and lift the frame off.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.
