Re: Replacing the Auxiliary

I would guess you are looking at $6-8,000 for the engine and a similar amount for the labor. It is possible to do a lot of the work yourself. I've changed a smaller engine (11 hp 2-cylinder) with the help of one other guy, but it was the same model so no system or mount changes. If you can get help to pull the old engine, clean up the engine area and then drop the new one in place, you can save a bundle on the labor. The diesel mechanic could check over your work, do the alignment, test run the new engine, etc, for not much $$.
