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.
That will work.

Patience.

All good help tonight guys!

When I ran into a road block I got my riser gaskets changed!

How many bolts hold the bell housing to the motor? I have 4 out but it seems like there should be more on the bottom somewhere.
Thanks again!!

I am not 100% familiar with the Chevrolet engine. If your housing is the LT-1 T56, it has 8 bolts.

When lifting one video I watched look like they were connected to the exhaust riser- Is that safe to do?

Boat: In my mind ... a 190 or 197! In my garage … Sunsetter Lxi

When I did mine (Malibu Sunsetter LXi) I found it easiest to disconnect exhaust etc, lift the whole unit (transmission and motor) by using a Harbor Freight engine crane and lifting/rotating the whole unit. This gave me enough working room to lay some 2x4 pieces on the floor of the bilge and then rest the whole unit on those pieces. This gave me enough working room to get two small bottle jacks, supported by larger “stingers of 2x6” laid in the bilge floor, underneath the motor and lift/rotate it completely up (front motor mounts were attached the whole time). Next I separated and removed the transmission and was off to the races. I ended up going all the way to a few rear motor seal. Feel free to PM and I’ll help or talk you into confidence if it helps.

Done mine a few different ways - the easiest is to put two strips of plywood on either side of the engine, use a tall jack stand on one side and a floor jack on the other, go across with a 4x4 then wrap a chain down and secure to engine and jack the one side till chain tight. Then remove trans mounts and give it another couple pumps.

Yes but its best to sling the engine itself if you have a lift eye.

I've done it with a bottle jack under one side manifold - its not ideal.

I always pull the trans and bell housing as separate parts for ease of manipulation.
