JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: we replaced the lower unit about 1 year ago, no problems removing it then.
JA: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

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

What is the model number on the engine?

Has the lower unit dropped at all, even a little bit? Is there any gap between the top of the lower unit and the bottom of the middle section?
