Pulling Olds 455 form Rayson Jet
« on: November 30, 2022, 07:08:58 am »
Bought my first jet boat 2 years ago, and the stringers seemed solid and all good. Turns out the right one is shot. So I'm pulling my 455 to have a shop do the stringer repair since I don't have the knowledge/space to do it. Any pointers on pulling the motor? I was going to pull it using a chain and 2 bolts into the heads. To separate from the pump I was going to break loose the 4 bolts on the drive shaft shown. Wanted to do it this was so I don't have to deal with getting the spline back into the pump, and while I'm in there I can grease the zerk fittings that aren't accessible while together. Any info/tips would be greatly appreciated!

I would not use the head bolts for lifting if I were you. Use a Carb adapter plate. Something like this https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/autocraft-universal-engine-lift-plate-ac641/10042662-P?source=certona
If you pull and use the head bolts to lift they can bend. Also they are torqued to a specific amount and equally with the other bolts. And possibly in a ?wet? hole meaning you will have to use sealant for re-install.
And yes to splitting the drive shaft with the 4 bolts, that?s the correct way to remove it.
