Thanks again.
if you pull the spark plugs, you should be able to grab the belt and turn it over enough to go past the missing tooth.

The tool is easy to use, wrap the chain around the flat part of the balancer attach to handle the chain grips and it uses leverage to spin. I use one all the time on holding balancers from turning when I remove the the big bolt...

I have same issue....

When starter gets on a broken tooth I turn the propeller by hand - or have whoever is in the water do it; seems to work. Rocking the boat has also worked. I had trans out twice and knew I should have checked/replaced dampener & flywheel; lesson learned.
