83 Interstate Engine removal

Is there a good video that explains the steps of removing an engine from an 83 Interstate?

How about a series on removal of the engine from Youtube?
It's for the 1200 hopefully it will help, also get yourself a Honda factory service manual and a Clymer manual.

1200 and 1100 are close enough to the same, the 1 real difference is the circlip on the driveshaft the 1100 has where the 1200 doesn't.
If you have a Honda manual why would you want a clymer?

Thanks for your replies. I saw that video and needed to be certain before I jumped into the unknown...

Please get yourself a service manual also, it is very important and makes the job easier.
Then when you reassemble the bike you'll also have all the necessary torque specs for the fasteners.
Also have a dolly of some type under the engine.

You never know... when you need to start a camp fire, and a clymer manual would come in very handy for that purpose.

I need help I'm STUCK!!!

Engine has been unbolted disconnected and sitting on the jack, however...

I can't move the Universal joint/drive shaft, it is stuck in place and does not move. The old engine is seized, could that be contributing to it? I couldn't move it before I unbolted it either. Not sure how to get it disconnected.

There is a snap ring holding the u-joint onto the output shaft (referenced in post #3).

Do you have the rear wheel and final drive off? If you do, take a pry bar, locate the inner end of the drive shaft knuckle thats hidden by the rubber boot at the rear engine cover and pry it back off of the output shaft of the engine. It should push back rather easily. thats how i got my drive shaft off of my 83 aspy. Should be the same as yours. You might have to raise the motor up a bit to get the output shaft level with the driveshaft to make it easier to push the driveshaft back.

He's not trying to get the shaft out of the swing arm, he's trying to move the motor and it's output shaft forward out of the U joint. Dave's already given him the correct advice about that #%$&ing pain in the butt snap ring.
