Default Long shot ---- Marine Tool Rental?

I know it's a long-shot but....

Anyone know of a shop/marina/person southside (or a close drive to) that rents tools? I have to do my trim on a Yamaha 150 and need the pin tool to (properly) remove the caps.

The motor is an 01 and I'm assuming there hasn't been any maintenance on them.

And yes, I don't want to spend $75 on a tool that I will probably only use once.

I appreciate any response....

you can get a cheap universal tool from harbor freight or just make one, which is what I did. You're probably going to need to replace the cap anyway if it's leaking and corroded

You can use a pipe wrench like 18-24 inch To just grab the cap and remove. The longer wrench gives you leverage.

Thanks Shore Native

Much easier than I thought. Soaked them with PB Blaster for about 24 hours, first one took some persuasion (with a chisel and hammer) just one hit and it broke free. Second one came off with the cheap pin tool from Harbor Freight. I replaced the caps.

Boat back in action, going after pups in the AM off Little Creek and Lynnhaven.
