Question about Boating
Replacing the water pump impeller, can't get the lower end to drop. unbolted lower end and shift shaft but drive shaft will not drop.
On an old motor,the problem will be that the shaft that runs from the crankshaft to the g/box may have frozen .The shaft has a splined fitting that goes into the bottom of the crankshaft.These have a habit of fusing together.It can sometimes be a problem to get them apart.1st try is to unbolt the power head and put some gentle heat onto it.The fused part (bottom of the crank).2nd is to turn the crank and with a soft striker(eg copper or zinc shaft)striking it all the way around the fused point,maybe 10 or 20 times.Then try the heat again.Its a long process but cheaper than having to buy new stuff. Hope this helps
