    99 SLH - What is best way to get engine, exhaust and pipe back inside hull?

    Title sums it up. I am getting ready to put a rebuilt engine back into my 99 SLH. I have done it (a couple of times) on my 99 SLTH and it is a tough fit.

    The SLH is smaller and it was tough just getting the engine out for replacement. Now my head is starting to hurt thinking about the install process (engine and pipe)

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The pipe should be in the hull before you drop the motor in. I had to do it that way on my SLTH

    Yeah I got my SLTH put back together a couple of times. The SLH is smaller, maybe I should remove the fuel tank? then the pipe can slide forward when I put the engine in. I seem to recall trying to move the pipe forward when removing the engine but it hits the fuel tank. The engine is difficult to get up past the engine mount studs and the pipe would not move forward enough.

    Thanks Bryan.

    You can fit the engine in the slh hull with 2 people and some swearing . and bloody knuckles. But it will fit. I have done it a few times.

    Leave the exhaust manifold off until the engine is in. way easier like that.

    Not at all. The pipe on the triples is 100 times easier to install than the forward bending pipe used on the twins.

    Pretty sure I didnt comment as to how to put it in, merely that it CAN be done, with blood sweat and swearing.... how does this all matter if its an SLH or an SLX, neither are easy to put engines in.

    New engine is in and running. Yeah swearing and blood was involved. I did end up moving the fuel tank forward and it was musch easier to deal with the pipe.

    During break in I was getting water in the hull. I had the same thing on my SLTH because some of the exhaust manifold bolts backed off (I will admit, forgot to put blue thread lock on the bolts).

    Anyways, one bolt sheared off on the SLH. I got to learn how to remove the exhaust manifold in the hull...... more swearing and more blood.

    Yep, should of done it like you say. Well there is always next time. I learned a lot when I had to deal with the sheared bolt.

    Thanks for the replies guys
