Any one have a idea how long it will take to remove and replace the engine in my 2013 636 or have any useful tips and hints to get the job done efficiently and quickly
a ring... But, be prepared. Take pictures. Do you intend to replace a '13 with another '13? Or are you gonna use a '14-'18. I know they are essentially the same, but there will be year to year running production changes.
Have you ever actually removed a engine from its frame? It's not overly difficult. But do take complete notes - snap some photos along the way. Use zip-lock bags to corral like bits & bobs; label them completely.
It is a job one can perform by them self - with the help of a automotive floor jack, though a helper is a great benefit
. Reread the service manual again. And maybe again. Make sure you have all proper tools to perform the job. Ask Rivers
for specific dos/don't dos. What of special notes of interest that are specific to era of engine. If you haven't yet ordered all parts that you'll need, i.e., gaskets, seals, etc., do so now. Every things goes back together easier if you do the install recently after the O.E.M. removal. Little things stay fresher in your brain.
