With no installation instructions, replacement engine kits are designed for those who are mechanically inclined. Before ordering and replacing your engine, follow these guidelines to make sure your engine is installed properly:

  1. Replacing an engine on a mill is comparable to replacing an engine in an automobile. If you are uncomfortable with such a project, hire a local mechanic or schedule your mill for installation at the nearest Wood-Mizer location.
  2. Some modifications and additional parts may be necessary, please call 1.800.525.8100 and ask for an engine specialist before ordering or upgrading your engine.
  3. Use this conversion guide to find the correct engine for your mill.
