Use Lifting Fixture, P/N 357667, to lift the outboard.
The centerline lifting eye is used to lift the complete engine. The off-set lifting eye is used to
remove and install the powerhead.

IMPORTANT: Carefully thread the lifting fixture
into the threads of the flywheel at least 6 complete
turns. Do NOT cross-thread the threads of the lifting
fixture into the threads of the flywheel.
Install the lifting fixture completely into the flywheel.
If needed, turn the flywheel until the lifting
rings of the fixture are aligned front to back

Thanks I tried finding one online. But no luck. The dealer said their cost was over $200. They dont get a discount on it.

 

OUCH kinda pricey for a piece of metal.

Many times several friends will pool resources and share in the cost of a tool such as that.

 

The list price is just over $218, so a $200 quote is pretty good. They do make a few dollars on tools like that but you may want to call around or check online dealers and get quotes from them.
