Outboard Lifting point

Hi guys
just a quick question on behalf of a client.
Client wants to lift v6 evinrude off back of boat but there is no visable lifting point on the powerhead. What clent wants to know can a strap be wound around the base of the flywheel and the outboard lifted then with pully blocks.

My concern would be damage to flywheel but maybe I am just being too cautious.

We've done it with a rope around the flywheel as well as other parts, not sure about doing it by the flywheel alone.
Or there should be a lifting eye available as there is with mercs which will screw into the top of the flywheel...

yes they do! its the same as a omc flywheel puller it bolts in to the 3 holes in the top of the flywheel . try keypart or your local omc dealer or faling that get a peice of steel and 3 long bolts drill 3 holes in the steel bolt it into the flywheel then you will have a lifting point. goood luck

Most Outboard engine will "balance" at the center of the axes of rotation of the crankshaft...( In other words dead nuts center of the crankshaft ) Mercurys use a lifting eye that has a male threat that screws directly into the female thread of the center of the flywheel and has a lifting eye attachment ( I designed and market one that is two tools in one , a lifting eye and flywheel puller all in 1 , see it on my website www.jaysmithracing.com.) I almost sure OMC use the same system. Use the correct tool for the job ! Ropes and "jerry rigging" can damage expensive parts and can get someone hurt !

Good luck,
Jay @ JSRE
