Arrow Engine Tilt Pics - Stator/Balancer Job

Trying to restore these pics, but couldn't find the original thread I posted them in.

So here they are without much commentary, any questions, just ask away.

Airbox, coolant tubes at the heads, final drive, and thermostat housing/hoses are all removed. Final drive was off for a tire and spline lube, but this did make mating the bevel gear and driveshaft easier.

Carbs, throttle cables, bevel gear, and exhaust manifolds are in place, not removed.

Thank you so much Spockster.... I was getting pretty frustrated at the apparent lack of room to just "rock the engine to the right" which everyone made sound so easy....

Gently wiggle the tube while lifting up. (after removing the holdown bolt) Some spray lube should help, these steel tubes corrode with the aluminum head.

It looks like your airbox is still in place? I don't recall if it gets removed in the factory procedures, but I knew I wanted it gone for the engine tilt. Maybe since you removed the exhaust manifolds, it has enough room, but the airbox is shoehorned in there and takes up valuable space.

At that point, why not just disconnect the throttle cables and drop the engine out? You're 99% of the way there.

Have a bad back and didn't want to wrestle the engine in/out by myself. It went back in a lot quicker this way, for me. Dang cables are usually tedious too.

Some might say.. But you have a floor jack. Yes, but the engine doesn't balance well on the jack, and I'd still have to lift it on/off the jack.

I've done many by just straddling the frame and lifting them out. Wouldn't do that now unless it's just a 250cc 2-stroke, or smaller.
