It's the same with either engine. I've pulled many and if you have the provisions going through the bottom is the easiest.

Not really, just make sure everything is disconnected and if you care about saving the oil pressure switch remove that first because a lot of time it gets busted.

Good write up on removing engine from bottom, unfortunately the site is down. But if you pm me with your e-mail address, I can send the article to you.

Alright thanks for all the help. I'm hoping to have it out and have the new one in and running by the end of next week
