    Polaris Virage 700

    What is the right way to get the driveshaft coupler off the back of the motor? I need to take the motor in to SBT to swap it out for a rebuilt one.

    I normally use the 'rope trick' method to hold the PTO piston in place while I torque on the coupler with a hefty wrench. Easier to do if the engine is still bolted into the hull.

    Thanks for the information I have the engine out of the hull already. I will run a thread when I get ready to put it back together all three of my Virage's have the motors out.
