Re: Engine Removal
Written by glennschechter on 10/14/2012 at 12:00 am

Good Info Skye,
I actualy was able to pull the engin and completly strip the frame of the PC that I parted out in less then an hour. I did youse an air rachet except on the exhaust flang nuts on the head. There I used an impact gun. I put all hardware in baggys and labled them or taped them to the parts they came off of. I do know that putting it back to gether would have taken alot more time.
When I put the stator from the 98 on to the 89 it was easy I just cut the conectors since they are in different locations, added some wire and soderd the wires and covered w/ heat shrink. I actualy belive I have a better conection then stock and w/ less resistance. I have never had a problem w/ my charging system since. Some are thinking why did I have to bump start my bike one morning at Deals Gap. I think I must have left the trunk light on.
Any way good info about being safe. The engine actualy weight is 175lbs. dry. I agree the gentalman doing the swap should have sombody helping him, but I think mostly to steady the frame when he slides the engine out. Maybe that person can bag parts. I have R&R other M/C engines and what a great way to learn about your bike. Buddy go for it, you can do it. It might take longer the first time but if you ever have to fix something on the side of the road you will know how to do it.

Engine Removal
Just an inquiry. To those of you who have removed and reinstalled a PC engine...is it a lot of work? Does the service manual provide enough info to do this correctly? Any tricks or weird things you came across while doing this?

    It's a lot of work if you do it by yourself. And it can be dangerous as well. Best to have someone with some strength and know how to assist.Make sure the frame is supported with blocking or jack stands. Do not take anything for grant

    The wiring harness for the 89 only fits the 89. If you compare the wiring diagrams for the 89 w/ the others you'll see the plugs for the stator are different. I believe the 89 has 4 leads on the connector and the other years only have three com

    Do you happen to know if a 96 engine will fit in a 94 bike?  If you don't know do have any idea where I can check?  Thanks in advance for the reply. Tim

    Tim, a 96 engine into a 94 frame will work.  No problems, everything will match up.   Removal is about an hour to two, replacement is about 4 - 5 hours.   Make sure you keep track of and mark your parts.   Make sure

    Thank you for the feedback.  The advice is greatly appreciated. The replacement has 24K miles with no signs of any leaks.  I'm dealing with some oil leaks and occasional trans slippage in my current engine.  Interestingly enough it
