Removing Tohatsu50 Lower Unit
Was planning on replacing water pump impellor on my Tohatsu 50 2 stroke. I removed the 6 bolts under the bentilation plate and the lower unit came away slightly then was impeded by the gear linkage and that's my problem!
How do you seperate the gear linkage on these engines. There is a small bronze collar about half way up the leg which is the only place the gear rod is visible. Initially I thought it was 2 allen type grub screws but just seems to be a bit of small tube hammered in to the collar. These did not seem keen to move so I probably have to drill them out.
Before I do this, can anyone confirm if this is the correct thing to remove in order to seperate the gear rod?
Have not been able to find a service manaul for these engines yet (2006).
An exploded diagram of the lower unit would also suffice!
