You should remove five plugs and one hose:
(1) Starboard side of the block (near front)
(1) Port side of the block (near rear)
(2) Right and left exhaust manifold (under the riser exhaust hose connection) use 1/2" drive ratchet to remove
(1) J-tube connection on front of engine (reach under and you'll feel it there)

Also remove the lower hose from the transmission cooler.

Never heard of the j-tube connection? Maybe I'm ignorant here, but what's the j-tube?

If you're looking at the front of the engine, it's left of the crank. There's a piece of hose coming off the t-stat that connects to it.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Thanks. It's actually light grey but that's equally difficult to keep clean.

Did you remove the paint from your engine? Ours is flaking really bad. I noticed how easily it comes off when i used degreaser on the tranny. (The boat had leaking valve covers when we bought it) I like the look of yours. Nice and clean.

Thanks. No, I haven't removed the paint. It's a Pleasurecraft engine. They came painted silver. Here's another angle:
