    That's impressive. I could barely see my motor mounts much less loosen them up. I ended up pulling intercooler and exhaust/intake manifolds when I pulled my GP motor. I did leave the supercharger installed though.

    One thing that works well for me. . .
    once the engine is suspended by the hoist, connect a ratchet strap from the engine to the ski's bow-eye to help pull & hold the engine as far forward as possible.
    Also, depending on how your hoist chain is connected, one can also negotiate/tilt the aft up and fwd engine down for more room around the IB/mid-shaft.
    Oh, and the reach-around certainly works as well

    To clarify..
    the pump/prop shaft does need to be removed as well as sliding engine forward.. or can you slide the mid shaft off the prop shaft? Seems this would alow for strait up removal with nothing inside the wall.

    I suppose you could remove it that way if you had the clearance. I had to twist mine out due to the engine only being slid forward just enough

    So you had the prop shaft out of the boat correct?

    also I have never installed the fizzle came in my boat. Is it mounted to the hull or will it move forward and just connected to the intake manifold and charger?
