Re: Can't drop gear case to change impeller on Tohatsu 6HP
On a much older yamaha I had one stick like this even with everything disconnected. Needed to wedge it with screw drivers and whale away with a hammer.
I wonder since it's relatively new if even the paint at the lower unit junction is holding it? Just a guess....if thats it might be able to get a sharp knife in there and break it.
The designers of outboards couldn't have made changing a water pump impeller harder if they tried!
