1914 touring, do I need to loosen or take off body to remove engine?
Should not have to. Probably easier than later models since there is no generator or starter. I have not taken one out of a 14 though but there should be some others chime in.
Just need to remove the windshield and firewall.
To add to what Mike correctly said, the firewall, coil box, horn, and wiring come off as an assembly.
1. Unbolt the steering bracket from the frame
2. Remove the timer from the engine without disconnecting any wires
3. Remove the drag link from the pitman arm
4. Unbolt the steering bracket from the frame
5. Disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plug ends only
6. Disconnect the MAG wire from the magneto post only
7. Disconnect the horn bulb from the body
8. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the speedometer only
9. Remove the windshield
10. Unbolt the firewall and lift it out with everything still attached
Royce, thank you for your post; I've been considering doing this to my '14 as well.
Numbers 1 and 4 are the same. Is this duplication, or did you mean an additional step not listed?
Please let me know.
I missed eliminating the redundant step as I edited the post. You only have to do it once!
Be careful removing the radiator too!
