Shrapnel

Hi Guys
I found a 3mm bit of steel on the magnetic oil drain plug while changing the oil. This 2 stroke mariner 60 bigfoot was struggling to find reverse last summer.
The lower leg is off to change out the impeller, should I pull the gears out as well ?
I'm not sure how to attack this but I can take photos. ;0)
A manual would be great .....

Cheers

OUCH!

I'd have a go at opening the box, that looks like either part of a gear or a dog.

be careful though, it's probably going to be a difficult job to remove the castellated ring that holds it all in.

The oil is fine mate.
So do I start stripping at the prop end ?

Yes, it needs stripping. You'll need a manual. I think I have the manual for the gearbox, but you'll have to make sure.PM me an email addy and I'll send you it.

You might find it a good idea to get a new castellated ring ordered. It's unlikely to come out in one piece.

Ah, there's no castellated ring on that one. I think that's probably as well, it'll make stripping it easier!
