Default Marine Pin Wrench for Yamaha 60hp 2-stroke

I've been looking at redoing the seals in my tilt/trim on my 2-stroke Yamaha 60. (1998)
The marine pin wrench for Yamaha that I keep seeing online indicates it'll fit 2-stroke Yamahas from 115 and up. I see no mention of smaller. The set of 3 wrenches describes them as fitting other outboards, but I have not see the specs.

Anyone know what wrench fits it?

I'll make an assumption that you were referring to marinetechtools website? If you are interested in their products why not call them and ask? Betting they could tell you exactly which size you will require.

I guess I could! Good point.

We could eliminate a lot of forum content is we just called vendors and marine repair places.

I stopped at such a place in the way home from work and he suggested a spanner wrench.

I broke one spanner and bent another before I got the Marine Tech Tool. After wasting untold hours, I had the caps off in 5 minutes with the tool and a breaker bar. The tool has three pins, the spanners I tried only had 2.
(I did spend almost as much $on the tool as the $ I saved by reusing the caps.)

NAPA sells decent tools but I avoid places like Harbor Fright.

Order a new cap and take the old one off with an air chisel. Almost always has to come apart that way anyway.

I wasted my time trying a cheap spanner wrench from Harbor Freight, then bought the pin tool from Marinetech awesome tool cap came off with ease. I purchased extra pins just in case they are replaceable!
