Shackle

Is there a lifting point (an eye in the block moulding) under the hood and flywheel cover ?? Attach a shackle/s then can be lifted easily with an engine lift. It won't hang vertical but can be swung / positioned as required to get it on / off a transom.

Hi ,

Thanks , But Nothing on my engine like that anywhere , I have the use of a hydraulic crane though, Just nothing Solid to fasten to.(I don't fancy using straps)

I did it by using a lifting strap around the wheel.

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
