I am about to remove the OMC Cobra outdrive from my 88' Four Winns w/ 4.3L. for a bellows replacement. I have noticed that a few people suggest to put the drive in forward gear before removing. My question is does it need to be in FULL forward or just past neutral (or does it matter as long as it is in forward)? What exactly does this do and how does it help with the removal/installation? Also, are there any other tricks I should know about for the removal/install to be as simple as possible? Thanks in advance for the help.
