I've got 2 manuals- seloc and clymer but only the seloc covers the really early ones which is unfortunate as the Seloc isn't great. You find them on Ebay occasionally (both mine are from there) but the only one there at the moment is in the USA but will post to UK. Usually about 28 quid so grab it if you can!

went back to motor today been left upside down filled with deisal for approx 10 days ,using a hydraulic spreader between fins and two tapered chisels back and front success it came apart !! thanx to Nos4r2 and all who helped with this post have photos of it apart! the impellor blades were almost falling off so hopefully new impellor and he should be up and cruising soon,
any advice on sourceing parts would be useful we did break a nylon threaded water pipe so need new one of these as well but all in all well pleased thus far..

No, that bush is supposed to come out-looks like it all came out fine (were the water vents broken beforehand or did they break while taking the lower unit off? They won't make any difference to it like that anyway). It's in remarkably good condition considering it's over 40 years old.

the bush is pretty firmly in place but need to remove it to get impellor houseing off shaft must say i was impressed with the condition of shaft the way it was stuck thought it was going to be a pile of rust!!
brotherinlaw broke vents before i got there! it was going to be an all or nothing result!! he also broke the nylon nut with water pipe that goes at the front of the lower unit so need to replace that as well but all in all it was a superb result
i will make a couple of ali slotted plates and pop rivet them in place to keep it all looking nice !

Don't worry about the nylon nut and hose-it's the speedo takeoff and they aren't much good when they DO work. It means having an extra hose connected to the motor too.

You WILL need to replace that bush if it gets damaged though-it's what holds the grease into the powerhead/driveshaft joint.
