Hello. My name is***** will be assisting you. Locate the shift lever # ***** then on the shift lever is a pin # ***** pull the pin out. Push in on lever this will release the shift rod. Now be sure there is no weight on the lower unit put one bolt in to hold lower unit on till you have released the shift rod. Open this link for a diagram. http://www.boats.net/parts/search/BRP/JOHNSON/1999/J90PLEEB/CYLINDER%20&%20CRANKCASE/parts.html This should solve your issue but if the lower unit still doesn't come off post back and let me know.
