You can't just drop the lower unit off the engine, that's normally how water pump impellers are changed.

What about buying the proper size bolt and short length of chain?

I lifted off the Merc 200 powerhead off my engine by hand, but I pulled off the heads and stuff since I was rebuilding it anyway.

The house boat is still in the water and I need to pull the hole motor out of the water, can't pull the lower in the water, its been sitting for awhile and its covered in barnicales and shit, so it has to come all the way off the boat and out of the water

What size motor?? I've got a 50HP 4-stroke. Not sure, but if it's a simple unbolt/rebolt, you can borrow mine. Mine is at Pine Flat Marina.

I have one, but I'm to far away. Check ebay if your not in a hurry. There is a guy that sells them on there all day long. I bought mine on ebay, engine lift and fly wheel puller all in one, sucker works great.
