Question about Boating
It is not going to be hard at all. You will have to pull the lower unit which with a 15 horse motor will not be that hard, so you could probably do it by yourself. Mine is a 150 horse mercury and i normally have one other person help me.

There is no special tricks.Unbolt the gearshift linkage that has access through the side of the leg.Usually a small plate.Unbolt the lower g/box.4 bolts I think.The box should then drop.If not,use a rubber hammer and be patient.Put the lower skeg of the g/box in a vice to make things easier.NOW.When you lift the housing of the w/pump take a note of which way the impellar pump lobes are curled.DON'T put the new impellar in the wrong way.It's probably worth putting in a new seal whilst it's apart.You spin the housing or imp. as you put it together.Use a small bit of grease for the initiall dry start-up.Put some very good grease on the top splines on the driveshaft.It goes straight into the crankshaft.If it corrodes,nothing comes apart.As you put the g/box back on,spin the prop so the splines go back in.There is no special alignment.Gearchange linkage and you go fishing.(take the prop off and regrease the splines on the shaft of it)Hope this helps

SOURCE: hard starting outboard
Remove the starter and have it tested at a marine dealer or autoparts store. If it is dragging and taking too much voltage it will not start.Dragging starter also will keep the engine from spinning the speed needed to start.

I had one.....make sure the linkage is hooked correct. If it works when you do it by hand the linkage may not be working...??
