    1996 SLTX To Pull The Engine or Not To Pull The Engine

    I'm getting ready to change the stator on the a 1996 STLX.

    Do I need to pull the engine?

    If not, do I need to pull the oil tank?

    If I do, do I have to pull the gas tank first?

    Thanks!

    No, with the correct puller, it all fits. I changed mine about a year ago and it was easy, especially with no oil injection system to move over.

    If not, do I need to pull the oil tank?
    I haven't had a tank in mine since the triple pipe install, so I don't remember.

    If I do, do I have to pull the gas tank first?
    I didn't pull the tank to remove my oil injection but I do beleive my domes were off at the time so I'm not 100% positive. I know a lot of guys that have converted to oil injection and removed the tanks so you shouldn't have an issue.

    Thanks!
    Good Luck

    Are there any instructions for taking out the oil injection system? Do I leave the pump alone?

    This is the space I'm looking at. Not much room to work.

    Disconnect the oil reservoir nd scoot it out of your way.
    Once you remove the pump and front cover you have plenty of room for the short style puller.
    I did NOT have to remove the fuel tank or even scoot it back.
    It's tight but it's very doable.

    That's great info! Thanks! My ignition upgrade kit should be here by Friday, so I want to get things going.

    I'm 6'3" so I should be ok? Looks like a good time to disable the oil injection while I'm at it...any suggestions?

    I'm hurting here....I got the oil tank loose, but I can't get it out. It looks like I need to move the gas tank forward about 3-4 inches.

    And to do that, it looks like there are two bolts holding the tank to the hull.

    Does this sound right? It's going to be a pain in the ass to get the gas tank free.
