    In this episode, which is almost 30 minutes long, we filmed the disassembly of the carburetors, the electrical system, the airbox, the water pump and the clutch.
    Problems encountered: incorrectly mounted oil filter, clutch plate filed by the alternator chain tensioner.

    In the fifth episode the much coveted extraction of the engine from the chassis, being all very heavy, we did calmly and without unnecessary effort.
    First we put a jack under the flat part of the engine, then we removed the front end, we placed the engine on the bench still anchored to the frame. We then removed the rear axle and resting the engine on the side we removed the pins that keep it fixed to the frame we removed the vents on the head and the plastic behind the radiator fan that obstructed the movements.
    Finally, turning the engine sideways we managed to remove the frame, then we cleaned the part that will have to be attached to the engine support.

    The labors of Hercules? A no brainer compared to having to dismantle a 6-year-old rubber by hand as dry as a dog poop in the sun.
    After almost 25 minutes I win the challenge and after a refreshed attack the front tire but with due care .... but you will see this in the next episode.
