  • Chrysler Outboard water pump question

    I am curious as to the easiest way to access the water pump on my 55 hp 1970's Chrysler outboard. I have a manual that covers the lower unit and it seems like you have to disassemble the propeller and gearcase and then take apart practicaly the whole lower unit to access the water pump. Can I just disconnect the shift linkage and somehow drop the whole lower unit before digging into a prodgect i'm not sure I have all the tools and knowledge to complete?

    As I age my memory doubles in age, but on m 50hp it wasn't that much more difficult than any pump? I can't imagine you'd need to split the gearcase to get to it? Not sure how much difference there is between the two, but...? Somebody here's got one I'm sure and they'll share more soon enough. Good luck and welcome to iboats!

        sometimes it looks like manuals have things in the 'wrong' place..
        anywho, like wickware's pics show, all you have to do to get to the water pump is drop the lower unit,
        no surgery needed on the innards of the LU
