    Hello boat lovers. I want to change the water pump on my o/b . I separated the lower end and it is still connected by the shift linkage , I dont see where it disconnnects to drop the bottom out. Any help ?

    have a look below the carburettor, on my 86 merc 25 there is a plastic tab that lifts up and pulls the pin out.

    On my nissan there is a rubber plug about half way down the leg. Pull the plug off for access to the shift linkage clamp.
