Question about Boating
I've tried everything including taking it to a boat shop
they suggested cutting the shaft off
Is there any other solution?
Several things I would look at would be the Sacrificial Anodes may hold the 2 parts together and then look at the water intake ports. There may be extra bolts behind the water inlets.
You may want to remove the engine from the housing to cut the weight when wrestling with this. You may be able to pull the driveshaft with the engine and get the linkage and water tube out of the way. Sometimes there is just a slip together joint on the driveshaft. If you cut the shaft you may have to open the gearbox to replace it. $$$$
There are some Salvagers on the Net. You will need them to replace what you break. You could contact them on the secrets to getting this apart. Hopefully you will find a hidden bolt to solve all of your problems.

have you changed the impeller inside the lower unit.
There is copper pipe to redirect water up into the engine.
When you replaced the impeller make the copper pipe is insert onto the engine.
