Removing an MD2b.

I'm just wondering if there is anyone out there who has removed an MD2b from a Prout Snowgoose mk1? I'm about to re-engine my boat and am about to take the old engine out but it looks such a tight fit that I don't know where to start. So, any information that might help would be more than welcome.

Re: Removing an MD2b.

Not out of a Prout, but I have removed one from my own boat. About the only thing I can tell you is it is pretty easy to pull the transmission off at the bell housing (although it might take a couple of days with penetrating lubricant first), which can give you a significant length reduction if you need it.

Please post photos.I imagine dificulty is hoisting out? Or just general disconnecting? Photos certainly will help for ideas.

All the Best

If too heavy, dismount the parts (wheel, exhaust, starter, head, etc.). Messy but makes the lifting lighter.
