I made one a few years ago, with a old manual lathe that had a screw cutting facility.

Are the lifting eyes still bolted to the flywheel prior to lifting? Or is that just smaller engines?

Years ago, I made it using a 10mm thick steel plate, I drilled 3x 8mm holes at the right diameter and 120 angle to allow fixing 3 bolts into the corresponding flywheel holes, then a center hole to add the lifting eye.

The same plate with another set of holes matches Yam/Tohatsu engines
