Looking for some advice

I am currently changing the impellor on my Tohatsu 90 - have extracted all the bolts and disconnected all that needs to be and have effectively split the gearbox etc from the leg to the extent that there is a distinct gap. The gear lever is disconnected and I can't see any other bolts.

My problem is that whilst there is a small separation at the front of the leg the back is firmly stuck. I have tried 'persuading' it with a rubber mallet but am reluctant to force anything - I would appreciate any comment or thought as to what to do next or if I have missed something?

Welcome to ribnet.

A couple of pointers:
1. The thread would have been better posted in the Engines section.
2. A clue as to what advice you're looking for in the title would help.

Anyway, have you removed the trim tab anode? Sometimes there's a bolt hidden under there.

A hard-wood wedge and a thug hammer might do it.

Yep, when all the bolts are out.

Many thanks for the advice - all sorted - there was an additional bolt hidden under the trim tab - sorry for incorrect posting location.
