In a previous post I asked about why my Lower unit wasn't seperating from the exhaust housing when everything seemed to be unbolted etc. One person asked if I disconnected the shifting linkage. I can't find it being part of the procedure in my Seloc Manual but makes sense that it has to be disconnected. Does anyone know what I'm missing here? How do I disconnect the shifter rod. The lower unit is loosened enough to almost rock front to back but something is holding it. I tapped carefully with a plastic/rubber mallot to no avail. I don't want to damage anything in the process.
