    Polaris 750 Engine Removal Damn that exhaust pipe

    Been trying to pull the engine out, but I cant get the exhaust pipe out got everything else out, the engine bolts, fuel tank but I cant manage to push the pipe through the tank compartment. Engine wont come out with the pipe on it... Am I missing out on something?

    Pull the four big bolts on top and there is also I think 2 on the front side,slide the pipe forward a little then pull the engine.

    I don't remember if the engine will come out of the ski with the exhaust manifold on or not, but I do remember that in order to get the exhaust pipe physically out of the ski, the exhaust manifold has to be removed from the engine and wiggled out of the way.

    Exactly what he said ^^^^^^. Leave the pipe inside the hull and push it forward.



    CrazyA, the exh manifold can stay on. You just have to do the "roll and lift" to get her in/out.

    Gotcha.

    I thought I rememberd from back in 93-94 that the manifold had to come off to get the pipe out of the ski with the motor still in.... is that part correct?

    It's alot easier to the the motor in AND out by removing the ex mani. Pretty sure on the early SLs you had to.

    You may be right, I have never had to remove the pipe from the ski. Just the engine.

    Honestly Bruce, I have never had an issue leaving the exh manifold installed. I install/remove my Fuji engine by myself, and have never had a problem. Hell, pretty sure I even left the intake manifold on as well.

    This was always on a 94 or 95 SL or SLT. Not sure what years you meant when you said older...

    Thanks guys I got it out, I actually had to pull the pipe out along with water box or whatever that bucket underneath the handlebars is, mainly because the pipe had to be tilted, I have got the engine out from there took off the carb and the exhaust manifold and it does not look pretty. I have got a few photos if anyone wants to see it. Now what I am nut sure about are the studs on the cylinder head, when I loosed the bolts some came out with the stud and others did not, do I need to pull the studs out?
    Thanks for all your help!!!

    So as you can see the nut is out but the stud is still there, and I want to get to the jugs and the piston rod. I have struggled to lift them and no luck
