aardvarkash10 817 Posted March 24, 2021 Share Posted March 24, 2021 And at the end of five nice days out in the Gulf, we returned from Hooks Bay under engine (no wind), lunching at Man o' War (husband points) and then to Clevedon. On arrival, engine oil level had dropped about 500ml during the day, and the majority of it was found in the bilges. So the 2QM20 has to come out for a rear main seal replacement (minimum). To do this, I have to unbolt it from the gearbox, disconnect all the usual cables, wires, hoses and sundries, pull it forward out of its lair, then lift it, and swing it over to the jetty. Sounds so easy and its a job I've done often on cars, but without the complexity of being afloat. I figure it can be lifted on the boom, but once lifted, it would then require the boom to be swung over the jetty and the engine to be coaxed further along the boom far enough for it to drop onto the jetty and not into the water. Has anyone done this and can you give pointers please? Or is there an different approved method? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
