Question about Mercury Boating
On my Mariner 15hp outboard motor i need to removue the botom part of the leg to work on the water pump for some reason the sharf will not come away.
Put the motor in neutral.On the leg of the motor there is a little side cover plate.Remove.Undo the bolts.This is the gear change linkage.At the cavitation plate,there is 4 bolts.Remove.If the lower housing does not drop,give it a soft whack with a soft hammer.When dropped,you will see the prop shaft and the gear linkage.Lower it all the way out.Its easy to work on if you put the lower skeg in a vice.Take the water pump apart BUT!!! have a look at which way the impellar blades are pointed.Grease the new impellar as you put it back in and turn it at the same time to get the nodes in properly.Heaps of grease to protect all the bolts.Makes it easier next time.Hope this helps
