Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
If the engine is either used in salt water or it has been several years since the lower unit has been off, it may just be stuck on the dowel pins. use a rubber mallet to strike the read of the lower unit to loosen it up slightly. You may then need to pry it loose using small pry bars or screwdrivers.
