I need to do this soon, replace my neutral switch. I took a glance at Snobum's comments on this but didn't read the whole thing.

So to do this; once you pull out the engine support rod, and get the alloy spacer out, does the engine need to be lowered or can you just put a jack underneath and support the engine when you replace the switch?

I guess I'm wondering why it would need to be lowered if you can reach the switch port.
