    Thanks for your help. My gear case does not split in half. the gear shift shaft goes through a brass bush with a 'o'ring below it. The brass bush is pressed very tightly into the casing.

    No stream of water discharging is usually caused by a worn out impeller. There is a pin , or keyway on the driveshaft. Sometimes the impeller will freeze or stick to the impeller housing and shear off if the motor has been sitting in storage for a long while. Remove your lower unit and driveshaft. The pump sits on top of the gear case with the driveshaft running through it. Drain your contaminated oil and pressurize the lower unit. Soap up the top and bottom end of the gear case and check for bubbles

Here is a website where a manual for you outboard may be purchased.  Outboard Marine went out of buisness in 2000 and thus no parts of origial manufacture are support is available . Therir are secondary markets .    THe Lower case splits in half and their is a seal around the prop shiftm which is pressed in. The seal between the cases are cut o-rings which are placed and glued into place with gasket seal.
The water pump is located where the case splits a little bit higher. You must open the little port on the side and take out one of the screws to the connecting shift linkage to split the case. After splitting the case the drive shaft and water pickup tube(s) wil come out of the powwer head or the tubs may stick into the power head which is ok. Place the lower skag into a vice and remove the 4 or 5 screws to the water pump housing. Remove and replace impellor and impellor plate if available. If part(pieces) of the rubber impellor is missing flush out the tubes and the power head to remove them.   When reinstalling the lower unit use a flash light to make sure that the tubes return  to the proper place in the power head and the shift lever is resecured. If you need more assistance, just write back. I was an Outboard motor mechanic for five years about the time of your motor.

85 40hp evinrude stuck in forward?


Evinrude used a shift mechanism located in the lower unit that is actuated by a rod up to the linkage in the motor housing. It could be stuck anywhere along the way or the gear that shifts on the shaft could be immobile due to rust and corrosion.

You may want to find a blowup of your exact model via a Google search. Then starting from the top look for your problem. be sure to mark the position of anything adjustable so you can at least get it back to the original position when you reassemble it.

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.

Johnson 2 cyl 50 hp gearbox removal help!


Look on the side, of the lower end, (dirveshaft housing) for a small cover, with usually two screws holding it on. Then underneath the cover there is a fitting that connects the linkage. Put a mark with a magic marker on the linkage rod to remember where they line up. Put the motor in neuteral, (not running) and loosen the fitting, it should all seperate after that.

Gear Lube leaking from Prop


Keep an eye on it and put a bucket with paper inside under the motor. You want to know whether the oil is burnt oil from the exhaust or gear lube. You should be able to tell from the color of the oil. Its kind of like soot in a chimney, the exhaust goes through the prop with the oil you added to the gas.

Missing operators manual for Evinrude 2 hp outboard motor


Your best bet is ebay for a replacement user manual. Take a look around, you will come across one... For the meantime, gas oil ratio should be 50 parts gas to 1 part oil, i.e. 50:1. General care: Dont go full throttle for any length of time. Cruise of 3/4 throttle... Always flush engine after use in saltwater, including washing down exterior. Keep spark plugs in good order and check prop for fishing line wrapped around in near the prop hub. Otherwise, get a yearly service and have them check the water pump and replace as needed, get it tuned etc and gearbox oil changed.
