A lot of options LOL.

Old engine out.

First fitting.

New engine mounts need to make first and some fittings. I use FWD oilpan.

I found out (the hard way, as ever) that on CF350s every time the brakes need looking at it's best (and actually cheaper) in the long run to leave the drums stuck to their hubs and remove them as assemblies. That way the hub bearings end float can be adjusted (and bearings can be serviced if need be) so that brake performance is at its best and stays that way for longer.

Makes for more of a grunt job at the time (and messy when cleaning out rear hubs) but once the hubs are out of the way the brakes are a lot easier to work on and things like flaking rollers and oil seepage past the rear hub seals can be sorted before they go terminal. Then all that needs doing regularly is check-tightening of the wheel nuts (i.e. back off before re-tightening) so that they will move when it's time to service the brakes again. :-)

That would be a smart move in this point, but I try to manage "easy" and fast for now. I have plan to open brakes and hub bearings later, but now test drive is most in mind. :P

When you do open up the rear hub bearings the only thing that may be hard to find is new lock tabs for the hub nuts; in stock in the club Parts Department though (ask at the Front counter). :thumb:
