    can a 1200pv motor fit in a 99xlt?

    Some guy claims he put an sbt pv motor in a 1999 xlt hull. Are the motors the same size? His mechanic told him the bendix went out. I am mechanically inclined but does the motor need to come out to do this?

    on the 1200pv motors the bendix CAN be removed with the motor in the hull. However, it is actually easier to pull the motor to do it.....sorta..
    The problem with doing it with the motor in the hull is the front stator cover that needs to be removed to access the flywheel/bendix is also has the "feet" for the front motor mounts. To do it with the motor in the hull you have to support the motor somehow, and access between the motor and the tank stinks....
    Probably the easiest way, in my opinion, is to proceed like your going to pull the motor with disconnecting everything, but instead of fully pulling the motor, just stand it up on end.
