Hi,

My son cracked up his 95 VMAX last week. Body and suspension are no good but the engine is still fine. Less than 5000 miles on it and it runs great.

My question is how hard of a job is it to change engines with another VMAX. I can get a hold of a 96 VMAX that has a blown engine. I am pretty good mechanically but have never done an engine swap before.

Any special tools required? Is it a major job?

Any tips or help would be appreciated.

Thanks

they are a direct bolt in. the only special tools would be a center to center and alignment tool for the clutches, but you can get close without these tools with a straight edge and a good eye, if you have to. should be able to r & r the motors in under an hour. not much to it.

drain coolant(use the shop vac trick), pipe out, carbs and intake off, 3-4 motor mount bolts and unplug a few wire connectors. the connectors are probably the biggest challenge as they become brittle and stick together.
