Keyway Install: In Hull Question
So I decided to do the install with the motor in the hull. I have everything off and ready to remove the flywheel. How can I remove the flywheel bolt while out turning the crank?

there is a flat spot on the intermediate shaft that you can put an adjustable wrench to hold it

I use a piston stop (threaded pin that threads down into the spark plug hole) to stop the crank from turning

also, take inventory of the pieces that came out with the cover... there should be a spring and flat washer in the bore for the starter bendix
find those parts and re-assemble them into the hole in the cover for the bendix, and put a glob of grease in there to hold them in place for re-assembly

Thanks! That first one did the trick.
Alright, any tips on how to pop the fly wheel off? I have a pully puller and it is one and I am cranking on the damn thing, but wow, it is tough. I remember doing it out of the hull and it was a bitch.

+1 to all.
put a wrench on the intermediate shaft

keep wrenching on it. I had to take breaks here and there ... it will come eventually!

Gotta love that loud pop when the thing finally lets loose.
Hats off to you for doing it in the boat.

kevin, thats no shit, it's like the world lifting off your shoulders. I'm kinda glad i did it in the hull.

Lol! I feel like I am going to break it waiting for that pop! Tomorrow I am going to get back on it. Thing has worn me out!
