    Just my 2 cents.

    Some one mentioned the thing in the exhaust bellows.that's an exhaust flap that fell from the upper part of the y pipe.It needs to be there!!
    Also in the pic of the upper u-joint bellows and exhaust.There is a shiny thing sticking out of the side in the exhaust passaage.
    That tingy is called a Bellcrank.The BC is the part of shift mechanism. It needs to be taken out and the surfaces cleaned and lubed.
    It's held in with a 1/4-20 screw.7/16 head.It can be taken out without any adjusting of the shifter.
    Bellows adhesive ONLY!!!

    The hole in the side is a casting plug.You won't find it in 99.9% of the parts digrams.So filling it with something and covering it with silicone might work?
    Some one might have an old one you can get.
    Maybe an OMC dealer??
    Get the FACTORY manual.The oil in the drive needs special attention when filling.You don't do it right?? it will cost you an upper unit.
    Fill out the profile? Location? You might be close to someone who can help.
    IF YOUR OUTBOARD DOESN"T START WITHING A FEW SECONDS THEN SOMETHING"S WRONG!!!!

    Other websites are NOT the place to buy parts.They managed to screw up my last 4 orders.
    NO communication,NO follow through. Incompetent staff.Nuff said!

    Buy American made Cars and Trucks!!!Towing insurance for a boat,a GREAT thing.

    If you fix your problem,do the rest of the posters a favor and send in one more post telling who,what, how it was fixed.J

    The tool should bottom out on the gimble bearing.
    When removed it should have grease marks on the end.They should be in the shape of the splines like on the end of the shaft.
    The lines should be clear/even and all the way around.
    If not try moving the gimble around a bit(with the tool) and try again.
    You clean/lube the bellcrank?
    Sometimes you need to grease the bellows.
    Sometimes there is too much grease on the shaft.Under the o-rings the grease builds up and will lock the drive in place.Won't go past the o-rings.
    I always put the drive in F gear.Then as I try to push it in,I reach down and pull up on the prop(right side).This spins the shaft and it meshes and the u-joints slide in as it turns.
    Putting a 2x4 or a 4x4 or what ever will bring it up to make the drive level. That will make it easier to go on.
    You should never need a hammer or a lot of force to install. If it's hard to install then something's WRONG!!!

    Good idea to refer to manual on this one as you don't want it to leak.

    I don't want to get yelled at but I heard to install them dry. That's what I did to mine a few weeks ago. Worked out fine.

    Manual says" Use OMC Gasket Sealing Compound on the outer boss,where the bellows mounts. Not on the exhaust"
    Once you are putting the pivot housing back on,I use a small bit of grease on the bellows to help it slide over the lip.
