I swapped my 800A engine several years ago. I used the Kawasaki service manual as a guide. I used a floor jack to lift the engine into position. See if you can enlist a helper because it's awkward getting the mounting bolts lined up. Aside from the physical labor, it's not difficult. I took mine out on a Saturday, put the new one in on Sunday. Good Luck!
