    Its a 8000 rpm engine. If its not put together to specs you'll end up spending a lot of money, only to see it go permanently BOOM with in an hour.

    Follow the manual and you'll be fine, the electrical connectors are made so that you cant connect them in incorrectly. Bag the bolts up and label them for easier reinstallation.

    I'm no mechanic but I just did this thanks to much help from this forum

    Bag and lable bolts 100% like he said, take good pics, torque wrench, be carful when you take the PTO cover off the starter washers like to fall out and spray every bolt down with pb blaster if you can and let sit for a day. Where you can screw bolts back in where you take them out. the electrical stuff is all kinda easy but I was surprised at how many bolts there was. There is a crank sensor on the bottom ish of the motor don't let it get smashed accidentally. If you have the Manuel that's great also there the 3 foot deep guys on YouTube that are pretty accurate

    And geeez use the correct size Allen wrenches, if it wiggles even a tiny bit stop..even if you think oh it's one bolt, go buy the right size. I did not and spent 2 days backing out a bolt that should have taken 30 second
