Re: Can't drop gear case to change impeller on Tohatsu 6HP
Is there an anode ? if so removing the bolt may help you Some outboard engines have the anode bolted on the bottom of the shaft...and this also holds the shaft in...
Good point!! Yes, there is one on the housing just above the cavitation plate, I think. I guess the best approach may be to remove anything you can get your hands on. I would, however, leave the driveshaft in the gear box housing. Not sure if things would fall in to themselves if you take it out, but wouldn't want to find out the hard way.
