    lol cool.

    i just got off the phone with dales jet sports in dallas and was quoted $1600 to replace flywheel bolts, pull head and do a complete valve job. that of course does not include parts. is that out of the ball park? Im pretty handy when it comes to bolt on parts but when you have to pull the motor im not very confident it will be reassembled properly.

    I did mine a few months ago, it's time consuming I'll tell you that....but I took the opportunity while I had the motor out to do a few more things. You won't really take the motor apart, only the PTO housing. Not sure I took enough pictures to write a how to.

    how did you align the motor once you put it back in? Thats my biggest concern. the guy at the race shop said how most of them are off center when they come in for servicing.

    I left the engine mounts bolted and simply dropped back in the same place. I do have an alignment tool and after I putting the motor back in it aligned perfectly without touching anything. My suggestion is that, leave the engine mounts untouched if you don't want to spend money in the tool. One thing I do recommend, get a good torque/angle wrench. There is also some posts here suggesting using the use of ARP bolts instead of the "new style" stretch BRP bolt.
