Any tips for getting the motor back in the frame chaps...

Having a great time with mine...

Have taken the rocker covers off for more clearance but still struggling...

Hemp appreciated!

Do you run an RD03? if so, clearances are indeed tight. I did it yesterday with my son helping me. It took about 5 minutes, but those were well prepped minutes. If your frame is resting on a piece of wood, you may want to raise it by half inch. Then the motor must be canted to its side, and shoehorned from the right. With the frame raised, you gain some clearance at the rear cam cover.

Thanks for your help!

It's an RD04 but I'm sure similar logic applies!

I was trying to lay the frame over the engine on its side on the floor... Will try with the frame static and see how I go...
