I've read this post several times. I still can't figure out what you are asking. Can you be more specific?

I've solved the problem but the question relates to the lifting tool referred to in the service manual in the section on "Lifting Information", where it states, "Install OMC Lifting Tool, P/N 342672, on crankshaft. Tighten mounting screw securely using......" etc. The picture showed a threaded pin that screws into place with a swivel lift point on the exposed end. Online they are priced high for one time use I thought, so wanted to make my own. However, when I took a second look at my outboards they had suitable lifting eyes already in place and I was able to lift them without problems. But thanks very much for your reply.
