Remove engine from frame

Originally I thought I had defective head gasket. That got me thinking on how am I going to remove the engine to fix this.

So how much does a 80 CC EVO weigh and is there anything I can use to remove the engine from the frame other than my back or friends.

Replace the cylinder studs when you do the build and check the deck for cracking

Re: Remove engine from frame

It is no big deal to remove. One guy can do it easily. Drain it, obviously. And if you strip the top end, it is a piece of cake.

But you don't NEED to remove it unless you want to or you are gonna split the case.

TQ
