Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Removing Lower unit on 35 hp Evinrude.

    Does anyone have any tips or tricks to remove the lower unit on a 1981 35hp Evinrude. It appears that it isn't releasing from the spline. Does it require a pulling unit?

    No. You didn't release the shift linkage. It's under the carb.

      Is the release an 1/8 inch pin with a cotter key holding?

        should be a bolt on the port side of the boat right underneath the carbs take the starter off and itl be right there if the ngine is in forward gear .... did you get the bolt out from under the trim tab?

          Yes, the lower unit is separated from the upper housing. Does the starter have to be removed to access the shift linkage bolt?

                Well, i just completed this job. I found it was easier to take screens off the lower unit and remove nut and seperate the gear linkage there than under the motor ,( there is a black plastic wedge that hold nut on and has a split in it to take off and put back on) and it was easy to remove lower unit?

                  I discovered the same thing and found that to be true. I am presently rebuilding the gearbox. Thanks for the tip.
