Any tips on removing a powerhead on my Mariner 50hp 4 stroke as i need to get it off to replace the water grommet on the adaptor plate ( see my other thread 'Outboard cooling' )
my workshop manual makes it look very easy :
1. Drain engine oil
2. Remove lower cowlings
3. Disconnect a few bits and bobs- Fuel line, throttle and gear cables, battery leads ect
4. Undo 5 bolts either side and powerhead will lift off.
All seems too easy to me......
A big question is would i be better removing the lower unit first so the driveshaft and gear shifter rod are out the way?
