    You can tip it up on its right side but you have to drain the oil and fuel out first. Make sure that after your done with the repairs and ready to fire it up you pull the spark plugs and crank it over to be sure that no oil has made it way into the cyliders causing a hydrolock. I have done this many times without issue but if you tip it on the left side it is sure to get lots of oil in the cylinders even though you drain most of it.

    example.

    Thanks Speed.
    Any advice on how to tip it onto the side and how to support it. Will sitting it on some old tires then rolling it onto its side be ok??
