    Did you pull the main long bolts in the back of the motor that goes from the clutch side to the chain case side? Can you show a picture of what it looks like at this point? Do you remove the lower oil return line that goes thru the bulk head and the lower hoses on the motor?

    Are you sure all the lines are off under it? Also on the mounts the threaded inserts might be holding it back. Each motor mount has one. Look close at the mounts. U should see what I’m talking about.

    Your trying to upload with your phone. Install image app to reduce the images size. Smart phones are not so smart. Or use TapaTalk app for this forum.

    Strange, Usually just take power wires off the starter and it all comes out with the motor.
