Engine Removal and Replacement for- 84 GL1200 Aspencade
My Haynes book doesn't give all the details needed to do a complete engine removal. Are there any members that have experience with engine removal and replacement? What is the proper procedure?

Is there need of removing the fuel tank?
Is there need of removing the stator?
Is there need of removing the rear tire?
Can the frame be unbolted to make engine removal easier?

I purchased a wrecked 84 GL1200, last September for the engine only; the front forks where jammed into the radiator. I had planned to this engine in my 84 Aspencade ( which has a crack block) . Without clear instructions, I still had to remove the gas tank and cut the frame to get the engine out. Sad to say, this engine was seized up. So, the person I purchased the wrecked bike from, is making it good by giving me a complete bike with a running engine. However, after I remove the engine, I have to return the salvage bike to the owner.

Any help would be appreciated,

The tank and rear wheel do not have to be removed. There is a section of frame on the left side that comes off. The false tank, rad, carbs and exhaust have to come off. The stator is in the engine so it will come out with the motor.
