Pacific Engine Removal

Hi
I am currently in the stage of removing the engine from a Pacific 22, to send to be refurbished. I have removed all the electrical connections and linkages, just need to either undo the Universal joint, or take the gearbox off. Due to the lack of room, does the header tank need to be removed?
I was just wondering if anyone has been through this before and could suggest the best method to take.
Thanks

Had mine taken out by Dean an outboard mechanic to fix a couple of oil leaks. He managed with a normal workshop engine crane and kept all the marinising kit on the engine and gearbox attached. Worth checking the exhaust hose whilst the engine is out and the other end is accessed by lifting the rear deck.

pac engine

as pete said the engine will come out quite easy, disconnect and remove prop shaft at coupling and UJ. remove with gearbox attached. It realy is easy to get out and as its so easy thinking of taking ours out in summer just to paint the engine bay and area. Hardest part is finding something with the height and reach to lift it out if on trailer. We used a forklift.

Excellent, is it going to be tweaked whilst it's there? might also be worth having them run it up on the Dyno and getting a print off of the details.

Mermaid always used to say there are more people claiming to have 200 hp versions than they have ever built.

Nice one, looks like a blue engine to me and not the standard white, show all the leaks job.

When you rewired yours did you stay with double pole stuff or go back to single as thinking of hacking our wires soon as its a mess
