Currently replacing water pump on a 06' 225 h.o. etec. Removed all bolts and removed screw from shift linkage unit is hanging free but won't drop completely. What am I missing. Is the shaft hung up or something? Any help much appreciated. Thanks
Make (of engine): Evinrude
Model (of engine): etec
Hi my name isXXXXX will assist you.
Did you remove screw # XXXXX from the shift coupler # XXXXX? If yes then the shift rod is just being aggravating. Pull harder on the gearcase.
