Question about 2004 Mercury Mariner
I removed the lower unit on my 40 horse, 1986 mariner outboard, to repair the water pump. When I replace the l. u. the gears hang up and I can't free them without removing the lower unit again. I would appreciate your advice. Thanks
With your lower unit off have someone shift the engine into forward while watching the gear shift select shaft's rotation,let gearshift remain in forward,now place your lower unit in forward and reinstall. In the future just put engine in forward when installing a water pump as there won't be a need to move gearshift
