  • Yamaha F115 Powerhead Lift Points

    I broke the shift bracket on my 2003 F115 (TXRB) while replacing my water pump (yes, I'm a moron). I have a replacement bracket (ordered from SIM Yamaha, of course), but I'll have to pull the powerhead to provide enough room to work.

    While the Yamaha repair manual has a step-by-step description of derigging, it does not show the lift points on the engine. My understanding is that the newer F115 "B" engines require an extra lift-eye attachment but the older F115 "A" engines have this built-in. Is this correct? If so, where are the lift points? Any other tips about doing this correctly?

    Many thanks!

        I agree! Those are great photos of the lift points -- thanks a bunch.

        Just a follow up: Does anyone know if I need to drain the engine oil prior to pulling the powerhead? The repair manual says to remove the dipstick, but fails to mention anything about emptying the oil sump. I"m assuming the answer is "yes", but thought I'd check the brain-trust here.

          Um yea, probably a good idea, unless you want some of it in your shoes.
