Avant engine removal
I got my avant second hand (like new though) and want to pull my OS Cspec out and put in the new OS SZH, how involved is it to pull out the motor thats in it already?

PM sent.

You will find that the AVANT is a cake to work on. If you don't have the instructions, you should download them from CX and have a cursory read.

Note the section on the Engine Install.
Remember to remove the two front screws on the clutch bearing block and loosen the rear ones. Turn the engine sideways, tilt forward, and it should be easy to pull out.

I was able to drop the engine just by removing the pipe, four screws, the hex adapter, the two front screws on the upper clutch bearing block, and the bottom plate, then and only then could I remove the engine.

I also want to remove the fuel tank, just remove the plates on the side and it should pull out? looks like a tight fit the way the fuel cap and tubes are pointing. Need to change out the fuel tubing and add a fuel magnet.
