Hello. My name is Tan.

You can pull the engine without removing the outdrive. It is not the correct way as the drive should be removed so when you install the engine you can check engine alignment.

I don't recommend pulling the engine without pulling the outdrive. If you do pull engine and don't pull the drive and install the motor without checking the drive it will tear up the engine coupler. So it is you own risk to take.
