Dan taking it apart shouldn’t be a problem for if your a mechanic. I haven’t taken mine apart yet, but I was a motorcycle mechanic at one time, they are all close to the same. the one thing you want to make for yourself is a box made from a 2×4’s standing up on the 1 1/2 side. ( 12″ x 11″ ) Take the clutch side of the motor apart first then flip it over and split it from the ignition side. Make sure you tap on the countershaft (drive – output shaft ) so the trans doesn’t fall out, and pay attention to make sure if the trans lifts out of one of the bearings that you don’t drop a washer if it has any.
