    Engine removal-----first timer

    Need some advice and help. I believe the Bendix on our 2007 RXP is shot. I was thinking about pulling the motor and working on it myself. I am NOT a diesel mechanic by any means. I am a union electrician, so some what mechanically inclined. Any advice while I have the engine removed? Should I replace the flywheel bolts or anything else. I have all winter to work on it. Any special tools or is this something I should just pay a pro to do?? What would the cost be if it is actually the Bendix that is bad? Thanks for any advice or help I need in the future....

    What are your symptoms for you to think the bendix is bad?? it's very rare those go bad.

    Pappy,

    Use the shop manual procedures. Www.brpmanuals.com.

    Obviously need engine hoist as a minimum, mounting on engine stand would be best. 3 mounting bolt holes next to starter. You could do a lot of things here besides starter issues like checking oil pump screen, front oil scavenge pump screen, fly wheel bolt update, check head, etc, etc. just depends on you.

    Starter just spins, does not engage flywheel. Pulled starter and gear looks brand new. Ski only has 100 hrs on it.

    It's not that bad to do it - a little time - a little beer - a friend - a lift - plenty of help on this forum -

    remove pump - driveshaft - hoses - starter wire - but you did that - cables -

    Good luck! try to turn motor over first - you might have lost a tooth on the flywheel - just an fyi
