Hi did a damper couple years ago two things that made the job easier was 1. I wedged some 2x4's under the exhaust risers and the tranny mounts. This kept the engine from moving too much. 2. Make some alignment dowels by getting two bolts the same size but about 1-1.5 inches longer than then the bellhousing bolts. Cut the heads off, bevel a little with a file. When you are trying to line the tranny back up screw the dowels into the block slide the bellhousing over them. Install the other bellhousing bolts, then remove the dowels and replace with your remaining two bolts. Also the engine need to be tilted more than lifted. I did this with prying up with a bar and or 2x4. The front motor mounts still carry much of the weight.

I think I did wedge some wood blocks under the oil pan as well. The engine is heavy but most of the weight is carried by the front mounts. I used them as a pivot and didn't touch them.

Bottle jack(s) and light shoring (2x4, etc.) under the risers.

Or an overhead hoist, chain-fall, etc. with threaded lifting rings and a load spreader.

Or an overhead mechanism with a rigging strap. Doesn't take much.

Remove the connections from the transmission, leave the rear mounts in the stringers. Lift the rear; rotating the engine on the front horizontal trunions.

Well- I think I am as far as I can go.

I need to find a spreader bar or some thing. I will roll the boat out and put the loader above the motor and Jack use a come along to pivot it up.

Thanks for the help. I want to make the weekend water so bad.
