Re: Soliciting advice on how to pull my engines.

Several years ago a friend pulled the engines in his houseboat, he basically disassembled the engines down to the blocks to eliminate weight. Then he and several good ol' boys man handled the blocks out. Back breaking but cheap. Went back in the same way, 350's.
