Trick on getting the motor back in: Pull the swingarm back out of the way, and catch the motor with the swingarm pivot shaft (whatever it's called) and the lower engine bolt. Next, catch the front of the motor with the aluminum hangers. Then, go back and remove the swingarm shaft, install the swing arm, and insert the pivot shaft.

I tried for hours to get the motor in the hard way. After removing the swing arm and doing it as above, we were done in about 20 minutes.

Oh, and I can tell you how NOT to time the motor, if you want to know.
