    Well there are a lot of variables but pulling the engine basically would consist of the following(all very rough estimates):

    Disconnect the pump: 15 to 20 minutes
    Disconnect electrical by opening electrical box: 15 to 25 minutes
    OR
    Cut electrical wires, worry about electrical later: 2 seconds
    Disconnect pipe and exhaust 25 to 60 minutes
    Disconnect carbs, fuel lines and cables: 40 to 90 minutes

    I guess I wouldnt be so worried about the time necessary to pull the engine but actually why they have to pull the engine? What needs to be done once its out? Cylinder or piston damage?

    I am not able to get two of the six to pull the carbs. The nuts were so rusted that the wrench immediately stripped them. I am going to pull the engine today for the first time. I can let you know how difficult the job was and how much time it took Sunday evening.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and ask a rediculous question. Have either of you tried short needle nosed vise grips to break the torque on the nuts? They are machine threaded studs and nuts so once the torque is broken you can spin the nuts off with your fingers. I just hate to see all the engine pulling effort if you don't have to.

    Yes, I have tried a small pair of vice grip with lots and lots of PB Blaster with no success. I bought some bolt / nut removers and will try one more time but I am preparing to remove the engine. Salt water and steel don't mix well!

    To bad we are not close enough to help each other since it sounds like we have the exact same problem.
