danger

FALLING ENGINE

To avoid injury from a falling engine, do not use the engine lifter brackets alone when lifting the engine with a marine gear, main alternator, engine skid, engine module, radiator, or similar component attached. The engine lifter brackets are designed to lift the engine only.‪

NOTICE:

To lift the engine, use a suitable lifting device. See Figure "Lifting Engine" . A spreader bar should be used with a sling and adequate chain hoist when lifting any engine. The lifting device should be adjusted so the lifting hooks are vertical to prevent bending the engine lift brackets. To ensure proper weight distribution, all three engine lift brackets provided must be used in lifting the engine. Be sure the spreader bar is adequate to prevent lifter brackets from contacting the engine rocker cover and causing damage.‪

A lifter bracket should always be reinstalled whenever removal is necessary see Figure "Engine Lifter Brackets" . For engine models equipped with the compact gear train see Figure "Engine Lifter Brackets Compact Gear Train Models" .‪
