:confused: Sorry to post in so long and then start out with a question, but here goes.

Buying a new/used Johnson 200hp 1998 engine for the boat. Dealer will hang and setup same. I want to pull at house the current 1989 Evinrude 175 VRO and sell. The last engine I pulled was 1998 Force 90hp and used a special tool. Of course will not fit the E 175, what tool do I need besides just rigging some lifting straps.

Thanks in advance.

never heard of a special tool, but never worked on one that big either. I always had 4 bolts and some cables and off it came..

For future ref. 3 7/16" fine thread bolts and washers, three short pcs. of chain and one quick link and you have a engine puller for V6 evinrudes.
Just screw them into the fly wheel. and hook to your lift.

Sounds like I need to hand around a few more outboard shops. I'm trying to picture a 200HP engine hung by three bolts in its flywheel. It sounds cool and is something I think I'd like to watch, but maybe not something I'd want to do-it-myself, or at least not to my own engine. Maybe Sundrop's!:) Call me when you want to try it 'drop...
