Tohatsu 50 gearbox

Tried removing the lower section of my engine today to respray it. I removed all the bolts and it came free and dropped about an inch.

However I couldn't figure out how to disconnect it from the gear shift rod. It has a 90 degree bend at the top so can't slide down though the engine & I couldn't see anything where the rods splits. So before I broke something I just put it all back together.

Anyone got any knowledge of this?

You will need to push the gear box back in to position. Just below the steering shaft and bottom mounts there is a gap where you will see the gear shift rod joint. Remove one of the spring pins and the box can then be removed.
You can see it on the parts drawing below.

Cheers! Do you think the same pin will fit again or will I need to get a new one in there? And is it a pain in the arse to get back?

If itís not damaged and fits tightly it will be fine, if you get the pin in place and use a pair of pliers to grip the rod and push the pin in as you close the pliers it will go in fine.

Not a clue! It came with the boat & I never thought to ask the guy what one it was. All the serial numbers have faded off. But it's quick! The only things that have beaten me so far is a 300hp phantom 21, 400hp rib & a jetski!
