    How many hours to swap engine...?

    If you're gonna pay someone to swap an rxt engine from one hull to another, how many hours of work can you be expected to pay? 2,3,4...? And probably how many hours to swap everything from one hull to another...?

    how many hours you are expected to pay and how many hours it actually takes if they constantly worked on it without stopping are two different things, haha...

    Geo... private shop or dealership?

    Geo if I were you I will go with the private shop. Sounds cheaper and they work faster too.... and their price is about right...

    But make dam sure the private shop is used to working on a 4stroke ski. Not just one or 2. I have a shop down the road that could do it, but do it without any issue's is anothere thing.

    At least the dealer has worked on enough or has one sitting around that they can reffer to if the get off or stranded somewhere.

    mechanic? I thought he was a partner?

    His shop is like 2 miles from me, and his reputation IS the standard around here... GO FOR IT...

    I still think you and I could do alot of it pretty easily and save you some cash, have him pull the engine, we can swap out the rest in an afternoon, then have him install and align the chit up...
