Default engine removal...?

Is there a recommended method to remove the engine on a club car? I just removed the engine from a carryall 2 and did it by removing the engine with the little "subframe" it sits on as a unit. I dropped it out the bottom. Would I have been better to pull just the engine out the top?

What about a DS or Precedent. Do they come out through the seat or the bottom or what?

Curious....

I just lift the engine out of the top ... on a golf car I remove the rear body first.

I have a hoist in the ceiling so I lift the engine and roll the cart away.

Sounds like a lot of work to remove the body!? Or, is it easier than it would seem?

About 8 bolts .... easier to me than working through the seat hole.... somebody else might disagree. But I feel like like I can do a better job when I can easily see and access the who cart like this, just my preference. After all, when you pull the motor it is not the only thing that is ready for a rebuild.....

I agree with Scotty. I removed the body on my DS and lifted the motor out the top.

Did it save time or was just easier to work on? Sounds like it's the way to go... just curious.

to me pulling the engine out of the seat hole is akin to rebuilding a carburetor in the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket.

lol... You should try to change an engine in a Carryall 272. You talk about a treat.. It's great!

Pulled the engine on a DS today. Removed the body first. Engine was easy that way, but it di take a while to get the body off. Seat backs, canopy, etc.. Also learned a DS is much easier than a Carryall. The engine just has the 4 bolts through the bottom and 2 into the rear of the engine that are easy to get at. Carryall was harder to get at the rear bolts.
