Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
All Mercurys are cataloged by serial number, can I start by getting that number.
Does the drive shaft turn or anything, or is it frozen?
There is no other hardware holding it in place. Once you have the pinion nut off, and pop the pinon off, the shaft should pull up and out. The problem is going to be either a bend/twisted shaft, or the bearing for it failed and is pinching it in place. All you can do is wail on it with a slide hammer until it comes out.
Did you have any further questions on the issue?
I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
Of course, that's no problem at all.
(I'm guessing you guys get stiffed alot by people to whom you've provided advice ) - Yes that does happen :(
Please let me know you make out either way. Thanks again and good luck!
You are very welcome.
Hi David, how did you make out?
