Dt 65 powerhead removal

Hi, im going to try rebuild my dt65 as its taking water in the 3rd cylinder, not sure is it a cracked block or coming in through the carbs, any way I have removed all wiring and eveything that holds the power head to the leg including the 8 bolts and 1 nut from under the middle cover. However the head still wont come away. Could I be missing something silly or does any one have any experience with one. Thanks for any help Also the flywheel is still on, does this have to be removed to allow the power head to be removed from the leg??

Get a manual!

I think last time I had mine off (60hp 2s Merc) it came off with the flywheel attached as I attached it to lifting eye by screwing it into the flywheel.

These things do tend to stick themselves together, its good you have removed all the bolts/nuts without ringing any off.

keep the forum posted on how it goes.

Have you tried to look on the american forum?
