Customer Question

have an o ld mercury outboard . Similar to mark 10, but the Impeller is in the unit that I separated . the impeller is bad . the gears are dry but they moue the prop . I would like to inspect the dog gear and gears. it is old and I had no serial plate . it does not hone a reverse gear motion . I believe it is J ust a forward motor .
How do I get the drive shaft out' the impeller housing and the lower drive . I have the prop Off and see the holding nut that has to be gently screwed out . but how do you get the drive shaft out?
