FP 4200 genset question

My Fischer Panda 4200 is at the 500 hr. mark. Manual recommends removing and cleanin the oil strainer. Has anyone done this exercise?
If so, what's involved? Do you have to remove the assy. from the sound proofing case? Can you just tilt up that end and access the strainer?
Do you have to remove the hoses and cables? Any experiences/advise appreciated.
Thanks, Jay

you have to at least unbolt the engine side mounts from the box and tilt the engine up. The strainer is at the bottom of the front cover.

OK... That sounds good. Do you by chance know if you have to remove the exhaust hose and other hoses (fuel, etc.) where they go thru the sound cover before the assy can be tilted enough to access the strainer?
Thanks

it's been 3 years since I did one. I don't remember. I'll be willing to be you'll need to remove the exhaust hose on the inside to get the flex you need.
