I need some more advice from the Yam 2 stroke people please.
I've started on trying to get at my top mounts which need replacing (as covered here
I've taken the gearbox off, and the carbs. I've disconnected everything which connected the block to the rest of the engine/boat (gear and throttle linkages, electrics etc). I've also undone the bolts that run around the base of the block.
As you can see I've sheared one of the bolts off, but I'm fairly sure I can get it out if I can get the block off and apply a set of mole grips to the problem (it ws turnign and coming out, it was just a very long bolt with only the last inch or so threaded so a lot of torque on the head.
With the bolts around the base gone, should it lift off? I've tried it myself but figure an engine crane would be a better bet and just want to check that I'm not missing something.
