Re: how to pull a motor?

check your compression while engine is in boat, then strip damengine so you can actually remove it from boat. 350- 450 pounds is a lot easier to manhandle up and out of a boat than is 600 pounds....TRUST ME... geez i have done this not just once but TWICE and while not at dock. i have been anchored or moored on a mooring when i remove my engines.
