Do you have in SUZUKI this tool to lift up engine as a standard ?

In EVINRUDE you have to buy it separately or rent if from some friend who has it.

Tweaking the Pig

The lifting eye is built in to the engine as standard

+1 for SUZUKI I'm curious what improvements / change you obtain.

1. Did you lift 1 or 2 holes up
2. Before you lift and check level ... Did you have anti-ventilation plate below bottom of hull or on the same level ?

Not finished lifting it yet Matt, I've had to break off to attend domestic duties ( Friday night shopping &#128527 I'm lifting it one hole, which is the last hole available. The AV plate is currently level with the keel, I hope to get it above the water surface at planing speeds.

I can fill your pain (about shopping)

I do not like to stop in the middle of something.
Did you think about hydraulic plate ?
I will buy one if there is any strong but lightweight

It looks like better way to adjust height of the engine

A bit of 4x2 and a bottle jack will have her up in a flip. Saves caving the garage roof in.

Yeah! I'd seen those, look a decent bit of kit. I might have to resort to one if I can't get the height on the bolts. I wouldn't bother with a hydraulic one though, no need imho.
