    On the starboard side of the motor there is a nut on a threaded rod that is flat on the top side, down by the bottom of the powerhead. There is a rubber stopper/grommet on the side of the lower motor cover housing that will allow you to access this nut. You should be able to see this clearly. It's kinda in the middle/front of the starboard side

    Turn the nut so that the threaded rod disengages from your shift shaft. You want the threaded rod to move in so the part that hooks into your shift shaft is backed off enough to let your lower unit drop. They hook together underneath your lowest carb. It's kinda hard to see.

    You should reattach your lower unit with a couple bolts to take the pressure off your shift shaft/rod. Suzuki has this...unlike other motors.
