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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

    Very easy to do...make sure you get all of the nuts off and do not beat on the cav plate or you will break it... need to take it down every year and lightly grease the splines that go into the power head... NEVER leave any grease on the top of the shaft... you don;'t want to deal with a lower unit that has stuck itself in the power head...they are many posts on how to put the lower unit back in which is sometimes challenging... if the engine has been maintained it should drop easy so be careful when all of the nuts are out...be sure and get the one under the trim tab...Steve

      Gary, Pick up a service manual, as it will have pictures. For that job, any one will do,

      Be sure to replace the impeller, wearplate and it's two gaskets. Inspect the waterpump cover for wear and scratches. Replace if you find any. If you have water in the gearcase, replace the pump base, gasket and oring. Put gaskets on the gearcase fill and vent plugs, when you refill the gear oil.

          The best manual is a Merc brand service manual. They are most pricy. If you think you will do several repair jobs (tuneup, carbs, ign, water pump), get the Merc manual. If you do not plan to do any of those jobs then a Climer/Seloc or other manual is just fine.
