put into nuetral,undo the five bolts around lower unit,take off sideplate halfway down leg casing,loosen the two bolts clamping the gear rods together,then lower unit should slide down[if driveshaft isnt stuck in the crankshaft spline].assembly is reverse,but take care putting water tube back into rubber grommet,and tighten gear rod clamp only after making sure that g/box is in nuetral,when gear lever also in nuetral,or matched together
go to a marine store and get lower unit gear lube. it comes in a squeeze tune and just remove the plug and squirt it in . both screws need to be out tho upper one lets air out as you push new in lower .the put upper back in first keeping oil in till you put in lower plug
i have fought with mine in the past also.
put lower unit and the control in neutral
remove all spark plugs and have a helper turn the fly wheel clockwise while you install the lower unit i had to use channel locks to put the lower unit to neutral
good luck i hope this helps
I work for a Dodge Dealership. There are no torque specs for the upper or the lower ball joints on any of the Chrysler Vehicles. As long as you get them as tight as you can they will be fine, don't worry they are held in by road force anyway. Note: Be careful that you don't strip-out the nuts by getting them to tight.
