Lifting points, Johnson 150VRO

Hi all.

Anyone know the correct lifting points on a Johnson 150VRO.

Its not fitted with any lifting eyes and I can't see any obvious places to bolt any to, or get a chain/rope around.

Don't want to damage it now I've sold it.

Cheers

Nasher.

Thanks for the advice, unfortunately I looked at the top of the flywheel and couldnít see anything. Some Mercs use this method I believe.

Iím sure Iíve seen other Johnsonís with brackets bolted to the block.

Look again, you'll find 5/16" threaded holes in the flywheel surface. I've got a home made bracket somewhere. I'll go and check.


Edit: 3 x 5/16" unf. Sorry the pic is a bit fuzzy, I wus balancing on top of stuff.

Thanks, Iíll have another look.

Iíd dismissed the 3 holes as only being big enough for a flywheel puller. Iíll get some bolts and a big U bolt on the way home to make a bracket using a piece of 6mm plate I have in the garage.

Not going to be happy whilst lifting it on the 3 bolts, but if thats the right way!

Yeh, they do for both. If the bolt in that lifting bracket is screwed down, it becomes a puller.

It would need to be some weight to snap 3 bolts!

Edit: Me grey matter is failing but I've got a feeling that there is something under the flywheel at that point. Don't screw in the bolts too deep just incase.

Did your wife manage to lift the crane out of the back of your motor?
By herself?

Give me a shout if you need a spare pair of hands, or something soft to drop it on.

Hi, believe it or not she wasnít too impressed. Ended up sliding it out by myself. (Fnarr)

I might take you up on the offer of a helping hand, although Iím sure you can be much more useful than a mere cushion. Seriously, I have a couple of old Cot mattresses (Clean) to drop the old engine on to for a while but could do with a hand.
The Suzuki is sat on a proper outboard shipping pallet at the moment, which Iím now going to keep and transfer the Johnson onto to ship it off to its new owner in Wales.

Just need to make up the lifting bracket and there is nothing left to stop me getting the old engine off.
Everything is disconnected from the old engine and all the new controls and cables etc are in the boat ready to hook up to the new engine once Iíve bolted up my homemade jackplate and done a small amount of epoxy work on the transom.

You know how to get hold of me.

Saturdays are out for helping, however.

Cheers Mark, I'll be in touch.

Jwalker, many thanks but are you sure its 5/16 UNF?, I've tried a bolt in the holes and it stops a couple of threads down. don't want to force it and strip them.
