Dropping The Gearbox on a suzuki 65?????

Hi all I need to have a look at the water pump impeller on a 65hp 3cyd suzuki outboard its about a 1989, today I undid all the bolts on the lower leg, and the leg is free now, drops about 15mm but something is stopping dropping right off, unfortunately I dont have the manual for this engine so I dont know if there are any gear selector rods to undo, but I cannot see any, have any of you guys any Idea what may be stopping it coming free.

Regards Nick.

Hello Nick,
what keeps your lower unit from falling off is the shifting-rod which also goes down the shaft because your gearbox is in the lower unit too! I don`t know how it is connected on this modell but have a close look and you`ll find out- move your control a little bit while looking at all the leverage inside the engine, so you`ll find where to go!

greetings,
Wolfie

Gear shift

Have a look under the carb area, you should see the linkage, on some models there is a clevis pin to take out, push bolt through and it should disconnect. Or there may be a nut to undo and then push linkage shaft in, but as in the previous reply have agood look under carb area and you should see what needs to be done.

Thank you both it was the bolt on the end of the shaft. undid it pushed the shaft in it then disconnected from the shaft. gearbox then dropped no probs. had to get the torch to see it all. anyway a big thank you chaps. bit suprised when I got the box off, took the water pump apart thinking it would be very worn but it looked ok, the reason I wanted to look at the pump was that on flushing the engine with muffs to the mains water tap, there was no tell tale, but if I drop the engine down into a 205ltr water tank then run it the tell tale is fine, so I thought the pump must be on the way, out what do you think guys.

Regards Nick.

Muffs sometimes struggle to keep up with the water pump and you get a poor tell tale despite pumping reasonable volumes through the block to flush it out. Generally on muffs so long as water is coming out where it should (ie the output , might be shared with the exhaust) don't worry too much about the telltale. If you revved it up a little I'm sure you'd see some water come through - but stay below about 2000rpm if possible. Seeing as you ran it in a bucket and it all worked ok, I shouldnt worry. Change the impeller while the leg is off as you have done all the work anyway, and it will give you piece of mind. My old 30 used to do the same, few revs and the telltale sprang in to life. You might want to look at the tap pressure too as could be a little low.

I think there was a 10 or 11 year lapse within the last week or two.
