R75/5 engine removal
Isn't it typical that one or two little things lead to an entire tear down? Well it is for me...Just wondering about this last bolt, the one that runs under/through the engine. The engine is pivoting on it when I take the rear one out. Is it a long stud like the rear one or is there a trick I'm missing? Doesn't look like there are any seals around it so I assume that it isn't in the oil...Just don't want to beat on the thing and break the engine casing! :D Any thoughts?

Two long through bolts on my 74 r90/6. The rear is longer because the foot pegs bolt to it. Pretty sure /5 is identical frame/mounting wise. Mine had significant corrosion which kept it from coming out easily.

Good luck!

yo Dan O that's exactly what I did and just so everyone knows for sure, the front was a long stud just the same as the rear one and there was corrosion all over it so I just pounded it out! Thanks guys the engine is out of the frame!
