Replace engine in 95 LandYacht Diesel

I just purchased a 95 Diesel Pusher 35 with a bad engine. I need advise on the best way to get the engine out and back in. The bad one was overheated due to a radiator leak and was run until it quit. A local shop removed the pan to find it full of metal fragments and said it was "fried".

Who's engine and who's chassis?

You might get more information if you signed on the a forum covering that chassis or contacted the chassis manufacture to see if they ever published a service manual.

Good Luck

I am thinking to raise the rear and go out the bottom.

Removing Engine

That is the ONLY way. You may be able to rig a derrick, use the lift ring near the thermostat and take the load, remove motor mounts and bell housing and drop it out. That is going to be a job, and an expensive one if you have metal in the pan.
