A manual will answer all your questions. In the long run it will save you a lot more than the $30 cost. Free advice can be the most expensive.

Experts know that KY jelly really helps in tight spots.

"Vista Astroglide" sounds like a pornstar name!

Heck, it probably is...

Re: the CB - +1 on the manual. That tiny little metallic 'pop!' or 'ping!' you hear can be quite expensive!

Just use a hacksaw with a carbide blade to remove those pesky frame tubes and brackets, the motor will fall out by itself. After you're done just set the motor in place and have everything welded back up....don't forget to number the pieces so you'll know where they go!
