    Its made by Eska. Removing the nut on the back side of foot should be all.

        Tap the cav plate gently with a rubber mallet. When you re-install put grease on the splines on the drive shaft going into power head.

            The shaft is stuck in power head probably. If you can spray PB blaster in there and let it soak it might loosen up

                  All Eska motors use Clinton legs. I dont recall Clinton making a sea cruiser. I just checked and Clinton made a AJ9 in 1969 it was a 5hp and was called a Peerless and Clinton. They made some motors for Montgomery Wards Ive had a couple. You have a picture you can post? Same concept as Eska. Air cooled powerheads.

                      It's ugly someone painted it but it runs pretty good going to clean carb.and try to replace impeller if i ever get to it.

                        Looks like an Eska but the tag got me puzzled.

                            If the drive shaft is frozen in the power head it can be a bear to get off. Been there. Dont give up on it. They are good little motors. You will be happy when your done. Im sending you a private message.
