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.

  • Suzuki 40DT 1985 Impeller/Lower Unit

    New to board-Very cool and lots of good info.
    Can someone help me with disconnecting the lower end unit on my 40DT. I see six bolts and anode bolt but not sure on the Clutch Rod/Shift Rod disconnect. Do I unlock the lower bolt then turn the barrel nut above while counting the turns (because it is the adjuster) then seprate the clutch Rod from the Shift Rod? I read a post on a different Suzuki HP motor but would like to hear from someone who knows the 40DT.
    Thanks for any help you can give this rookie.

      Figured out and confirmed that the lower part of the Clutch Rod and the top part of the Shift Rod need to be disconnected from each other via the barrel nut on the Clutch Rod needs to be turned after the lock nut on the Shift Rod is loosened. I will post pictures if I can so someone else doesn't go through the BS I did. Hope this helps someone out in Suzuki land with an older model 40DT while changing their impeller.

        You are correct. You first loosen the locknut using two wrenches. Then you leave the locknut where it is, and unscrew the top. This is probably easiest while in Forward gear.

          Does it have to be in forward when you disconnect and when you reconnect?

            Where ever it is easiest to get to , just make sure both the lower unit and the shifter are in the same position
