E's not deceased. E's pining for the fjords. Lovely plumage, the Norwegian Blue. Careful though, they stun easy....

Maybe I will retitled this thread "Mariner 60: not deceased - just resting."!

My cunning plan was:
a) to take things apart so that the powerhead would be lighter to lift off or I got to a point where things were so bad that I would just stop

or

b) to whip the lower unit off and remove the flywheel, allowing the crankshaft and pistons to come out as one, going back the same way.

Would b) even work?

I have definitely, definitely, taken out all the bolts but the crankshaft cover is well and truly glued to the block. Any ideas for shifting it without knackering either part? I don't want to take a chisel to it yet if I don't have to....

Thanks
Hugh

I showed that sketch to my 12 y.o. son last week - he didn't find it especially amusing but at least is now 'pre-loaded' with one more cultural reference by which to understand people laughing at things that aren't inherently funny.

His use of "We want a rockery - and make it a nice one!" in response to being the class being asked what they wanted did get mentioned by the teacher.

No, it wouldn't. I've just looked at the manual...

Can't remember if yours is a Yam or a Merc, but if it's a Merc it might use the same tech as the Clamshell, the Block - crank cover (would be the sump if it was "car way up and a 4- stroke!) used a "cord" type gasket and a glalon of squeasy gasket.

Do you have a rubber mallet? Judicious use parallel to the split with a few short sharp taps worked fine on mine.
