Figured having gone to the trouble of swapping engines, i might as well post up a thread about it with a few pics,, someone might enjoy it :)

The manual has a section on engine removal and replace, so no need for any additional guidelines, maybe just a few tips here & there.

I hope it's not too late, but make sure you remove the oil sending unit before you pull the frame off. They break easy

Hi R-111-R Turbo,

I may have missed any previous discussion on this (sorry to ask again if there is a previous thread) but it looks like you have swapped in a S/Charged engine in?

What was the motivation to swap?....Cheers

Lifting the rear end up, note the zero clearance on the oil pressure switch position

Rear frame clears engine vertically, so front now being hoisted up too

Also, pay attention to how the wires come down the left rear side of the engine. Other than that, it's on.
Bigger motor? Whats the reason for the swap

A more artistic shot, you can see the badges on oil tanks

Other engine now on trolley jack, moving into position

Ready to jack other engine up into frame, so front engine mounts can be fitted loosely

There's the front engine mount going in

Or was it the other way around?
