I think I have a leak in the fule tank,is it a big job to pull the motor to get at the tank. I have a shop manual to help me. Also how do I get to the fule line at the tank, I looked but can't find where it goes in.

Lift the cab and have someone shake the fuel line around from the engine side.
Look around under the pumps behind the rear axel and you should be able to find where it goes into the tank.
You have had the 3 bolt cover off underneath the machine to be sure it is not just the tank drain plug leaking?
One to front (inside the cover) is chain case one to rear is fuel tank.
Engine out and and back in will ruin a day. Did you see the special chain hoist “lift bar” in the manual. Mine has demensions on how to build it. No sure if you can get by without one.
Pumps and engine come out as an assembly.

Thanks for the info. It's not the drain plug,I looked everywhere. Have you removed a engine before and are there any tricks or things to watch for, it's my first time. I do have the lift bar in my manual and it looks like you need it. THANKS Ed

No, I have no personal experience with pulling a bobcat engine, but it looks fairly straight forward, with the exception of the lift bar. I sure there will be some tough parts, getting at some fasteners and hoses. But nothing to bad.
