How do I free up a frozen outboard shifter

Hi Rick:
Don't know what unit you are dealing with, but stuck in my memory is the way the old Merc used to work.
There was a rod that rotated, and the shift mechanism slid into a slot. We only tilted removed the bottom end with the shifter in the forward position.
You may need to drop the bottom end to allow the shifter to be placed in the correct position.
I'm hoping that you are using the term "frozen" to describe "blocked", as another total PITA can happen when portions of the assembly become corroded. Loosening them up requires tha delicate balance of heat, penetrating oil, and brute force. Bearing in mind you don't want to set it on fire or break it.
I'd try dropping the bottom end, engage it in forward, place the shifter in forward, and carefully slide the bottom end back on.
Hope this helps.

How do you change the gear lube in a Evinrude Triumph 70 hp outboard motor?

Hi .
There should be two flat screws on the lower leg, remove the bottom one and then the top.have the motor fully down position to drain, when filling with new oil it has to be done from bottom to purge the air out, Gear box is full when foil comes out top screw, install top screw and then bottom, you'll lose a bit of oil when bottom is removed install . if not sure have a look on YouTube, it should help you out.
Good luck.

Water pump

The water pump is a flexible impellor located in the top of the bottom section of the leg of the outboard. It is driven by the drive shaft to the prop that is spinning all the time the motor is running. You will find it behind or near the water inlet slots at the bottom of the leg

Johnson 235HP Outboard - oil leaking from bottom leg - dark black so picking it is the two stroke oil

most 2 stroke motors will not burn all the oil in the mix and that unburned oil coats the exhaust leg and leaks out the thru hub exhaust and parting line of the lower to the housing. so keep some windex handy and clean it up.

How to change gearbox oil on a seabee tempest outboard motor the gearbox is on the leg made by ocean outboards of southport england what i want to do is drain it then ship it jamaica the gearbox oil...

These I think you will find were made in Yugoslavia by the Tomos company and sold under the "sea Bee " brand in the UK for some reason.
I may be stating the obvious here but usually outboard gearboxes have 2 plugs one top and one bottom. Take out both to drain the oil and then fill from the bottom hole forcing in the oil till it comes out of the top hole, then refit the top plug followed byt the bottom one.
