Excellent idea about the bolts. About how long should they be? 6"?
The manual says to "retain the dashpot plunger" (whatever that is, I assume it will be evident when I remove the side cover). Can I just use a piece of wire to hold it in place as I lift out the cover.
I do not have an engine lift but I can use some pulleys hanging from a beam to lift it out. Sounds like it might be difficult to lift it straight out using the long bolts as a guide.
Thanks again for the excellent ideas.
