    I'm looking to replace the chain on my fx sho is it possible to do it in the ski with out pulling the engine out??

    Also does the fly wheel have to be removed to get the chain off the crank?

    It is possible to change it out in the hull. Just have to remove the oil pump and clutch so you can access the chain guides. Flywheel and stator are on the PTO side of the engine so that will not be an issue. To re-time cams, easiest way I found to do it was to remove pump cone and spin the shaft nut and set cyl 1 (cam gear side) to TDC and set timing.
