you can make a adapter and use a regular engine hoist, as for the stand that can be made as well out of wood or steelor aluminum. go to a shop get the demensions then to a weld shop.

I made a nice stand out of 2x4's and 3/4" plywood. It is also at about the correct height to use it to pull the drive off AND put it back on without tweaking your back. Also has wheels on it. And it's a lot cheaper than real drive jack!! I can make one for ya....or tell ya how.

Catandmice I just bought a cheep engine stand it works great, make 2 peices of round stock and put it on the stand so it fits under the cavitation plate lift the tounge jack a little and pull that baby out and you can work on the drive at the same time with out picking up any weight. Cost 55 bucks!

This link has some ideas

http://207.55.218.179/cgidir/ubbcgi/...c&f=3&t=002643

It's titled Drive Stand in Technical section from sept-oct 2001

Took a while to find but I knew I had seen it, good luck, you realy shouldn't need to pull those beautiful new drives off already do you???

Thumbs up

Hey Pyle, Im glad you brought this up. I pulled the Spectre out this afternoon, for a little clean up, and Drive service. This boat has been excellant on drives. especially with 800 hp. I bought some XZ gears and im going to do the upgrade for safety reasons...I have 2 spare cases with towers, so It shouldnt be a big deal.. I find changing the drive oil after hard weekends and Poker Runs really helps. I dont want everybody to laugh But I also put in Z-Max additive with the Merc. Hi-Perf.
It must work cause, I didnt hurt a drive all year!!!
