Wow.Is it that different from the 1200? I did mine and it was a only slightly a bear...remove tupperware, remove radiator, and then thermostat housing. But the hardest part that made it a bear was having to work sitting on the ground and working under the front wheel.

$1,000 bucks, geeze. Does that sound right at 10 hrs?

Man, GWs are just not designed for maintenance. They are engineered for compactness.

I am sort of a DIY'er. I figure if the shops can do it for $70-$90/hr, I can do it a little slower. It's just maintenance, and I have the time. Not really, but I do not have the $$$ money .

If you check out the Engine Swap photos, you'll see where the stat is hidden. Not a fun place at all.

It might be attacked from the front by removing a radiator or from the top by removing the carbs/coils/rad overflow..

No fun either way
