Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Do you have the actual model number of the engine handy?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.

That's not it. The model number will be on a tag on the clamp bracket. It will start with J25 and have more letters after it. That is what I need.

upper shift linkage

73
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.

What you do first is remove the water intake grates, #30. Once those are off you will have access to the shift linkage. You access #49 through the intake grate. 49 is the shift rod nut. Back that off and the lower unit will drop. Does that make sense?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i have completted that proccess
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.

What is the problem, is the lower unit still not dropping?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i have the unit dropped i need to fingure out how to get part 83 to com off part 82 and 56
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.

83 is the shift shaft. 56 is the pump cover and 82 is the base plate. I don't quite follow you. If the lower unit is off then you won't need to touch 83.

Are you trying to get the pump cover off, is that what you are trying to do?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
pump is not passing over part # ***** so i can replace all pump parts

Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.

Nothing is standing out to me, I don't think you have to take that off. Can you send me a picture of it?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
